There are some big names entering the final year of their current deals at Newcastle United this summer.

Newcastle United are facing some big decisions over the future of several long-serving players over the coming months.

With the current focus on the Magpies preparations for the upcoming season as Eddie Howe’s men look to progress in the Premier League and Champions League, the futures of a number of key players remain in the balance as they enter the final 12 months of their current deals at St James Park.

Last season’s top goalscorer Callum Wilson was reported to have agreed an extension to the four-year deal he signed when he move to Tyneside from Bournemouth in the summer of 2020. However, official confirmation over any agreement has not been made public and as it stands the England striker’s deal will come to an end in June next year.

The same can be said of Swiss defender Fabian Schar, who formed a solid centre-back partnership with Sven Botman that laid the foundations for the Magpies unexpected push for a return to the Champions League last season. Schar penned a new two-year extension in the final month of the 2021/22 season but that deal will expire at the end of the upcoming campaign.

United club captain Jamaal Lascelles has also entered the final year of his current contract and there has been speculation linking the centre-back with former club Nottingham Forest. However, prior to an impressive performance during last weekend’s 3-3 draw with Aston Villa, Lascelles received the backing of Howe, who hailed the impact the defender had made last season despite spending the campaign as a backup option to Botman and Schar.

Speaking at a press conference in the United States last week, the Magpies boss said: “I just want to add something, I just want to say with Jamaal in this group he has been an unbelievable captain.

“Captaincy does not just exist on the pitch, it has to exist off it as well. The two things are so intrinsically linked so a lot of our success last year came down to a group of players giving everything on and off the pitch.

“There was a group of people off the pitch and Jamaal was one of them. Now Jamaal will want to play like every player does but it’s how you react when you are not playing is the key. And I just want to pay tribute to what Jamaal did last year and we move forward together.”

Javier Manquillo and Emil Krafth will also see their current deals end next June - although at least one of the full-back duo could well depart over the coming weeks, with Manquillo said to have interest from two La Liga clubs. Goalkeepers Mark Gillespie and Loris Karius and club stalwarts Matt Ritchie and Paul Dummett all agreed new one-year deals this summer and it remains to be seen whether the quartet will get a further extension.

Midfielder Jeff Hendrick and academy graduate Kell Watts are also out of contract next summer but it seems inevitable both will depart St James Park before the end of August.
