The seven players set for a Newcastle United exit this summer - and 14 that won’t

It’s set to be a busy transfer window for Newcastle United - and things are starting to hot up.

This summer is set to be a busy one on Tyneside as Eddie Howe looks to build a Newcastle United side in his own image - or at least one that can consistently compete in the top half of the Premier League.

While his mantra this year has been one of evolution not revolution, it’s impossible not to believe United will be one of the busier teams in the top flight this summer.

In order to maximise their budget, the Magpies must shift players out, even though the more pressing desire is to see players arrive. Howe had a 25-man squad, and players like Ciaran Clark, Jamal Lewis and Isaac Hayden outside of the group at the back end of last season - and the club’s owners are keen not to see that repeated this.

So who will go and who will stay? Here we take a look at those with one foot out the St James’ Park doors - and those who look like they’re here to stay.
