Goalkeeper to become available

Newcastle-linked goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale is ‘set’ to cut ties with Arsenal this summer, according to a report by Football Insider. The stopper has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium behind David Raya and may well leave the London club at the end of this season for a new challenge elsewhere. 

Ramsdale, 25, joined the Gunners in 2021 having previously been on the books at AFC Bournemouth and Sheffield United and has since made 89 appearances in all competitions for them to date, 11 of which have come in this campaign. Howe could see him as someone to compete with Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka for the number one spot next term. 

Midfielder latest

Newcastle have been credited with an interest in Sheffield United midfielder Oliver Arblaster along with fellow top flight outfit Aston Villa. He spent time on loan at Port Vale in League One last year to get some experience under his belt. 

The Blades’ boss Chris Wilder has provided this update on his situation, as per a report by The Star: “He’s just got to get his head down and carry on playing football, which no doubt he will. The people around him, who have brought him through and will have a major effect on his career, are still in and around the building and we will do our best to help him move forward.

“You cannot stop that speculation. I understand people talking about [his future]. I’d rather not, but I get it. We’d rather him get on with his football, but he’s doing well and has got to carry on doing well.”
