Newcastle United's highest earners as wage bill hits £2.1m - according to popular game

Who are Newcastle United's highest earners according to FM2024 as the summer transfer window approaches?

Newcastle United are currently formulating their plans for the summer transfer window and it seems likely to be a hectic close-season at St James Park.

Several experienced players are approaching the end of their contracts and, as it stands, the likes of Matt Ritchie, Mark Gillespie and Paul Dummett will leave the club when the campaign comes to a close. There are also a number of players approaching the final year of their current deals and there will be some big decisions to be made on whether to offer them a chance to extend their time with the Magpies.

With the Premier League's profit and sustainability regulations in mind, there has been speculation the likes of Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak are attracting interest from elsewhere - but there have been a whole host of players linked with a move to St James Park as the Magpies hierarchy look to boost Eddie Howe's ranks.

That could mean adding to the ever-growing wage bill within the Magpies squad - but who are the current highest earners? We fire up Football Manager to see who the world's most popular managerial simulation believes is currently topping the bill.
