Eddie Howe is preparing for his full season in charge having guided the Magpies to Premier League safety.

United were in the relegation zone and without a win when Howe took charge in November but ended the campaign in 11th on 49 points - the club’s highest top-flight points total in eight years.

But the aim from the 2022/23 season is to do more than just survive. Under the club’s ambitious owners, a top 10 finish, you’d presume, is expected at the very least.

And Newcastle’s transfer business this summer will go a long way to helping Howe & Co achieve their objections.

Howe wasted no time in signing Matt Targett on a permanent basis from Aston Villa. And he’s set to be joined by Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope, who is travelling to Tyneside on Thursday for a medical.

With two signings already through the door, predictions are being made on where Newcaste will finish in the Premier League next season.

We’ve taken a look at the latest market prices to find out have United are tipped to fair during the 2022/23 campaign.
