Premier League confirm £57m duo removed from Newcastle United squad for final 15 games

Newcastle United's Premier League squad for the second-half of the season has been confirmed.

Newcastle United's Premier League squad for the second-half of the campaign is two players short of the 25-man limit.

All 20 top-flight clubs must submit their squad list to the Premier League following at the end of both the summer and winter transfer windows. But when the market is open, clubs are permitted to play any contracted player.

United named a squad of 25 for the first-half of the season but two have dropped out for the remaining 15 matches.

Javier Manquillo left to join Celta Vigo after six-and-a-half-years on Tyneside while £52million summer signing Sandro Tonali is banned from football until August following an investigation into illegal betting activity.

Each Premier League squad list can include up to 25 players made up of at least eight ‘homegrown’ players. Players born on or after January 1, 2002 do not need to be included in the 25-man squad, which benefits the likes of Tino Livramento, Lewis Miley, Lewis Hall, Elliot Anderson and Joe White.

Any academy player such as Alex Murphy, Ben Parkinson, Michael Ndiweni, Amadou Diallo and latest signing Alfie Harrison also don't need to be included to be eligible to play in the Premier League.

Here's the 23-man squad Newcastle United have submitted to the Premier League squad in full:
