The three players set to leave Newcastle United - and nine more who could attract transfer interest

Newcastle United have eight players with just over 12 months remaining on their contract

Tightening up loose ends was a key priority for Newcastle United ahead of the summer transfer window. Tying star assets down on long-term deals was equally as important as bolstering the squad with further signings.

Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton penned bumper new deals, with Alexander Isak understood to be next on the Magpies’ list. Emil Krafth, Jamaal Lascelles and Fabian Schar also committed their immediate futures to Newcastle.

As it stands, Matt Ritchie, Paul Dummett and Loris Karius will leave when their contracts run out next month. But a corridor of uncertainty has opened up regarding nine more players who have a year left on their deals.

Toon chiefs must decide whether to cash this summer - their last possible chance to recoup a sizable transfer fee. Age, importance, reliability, FFP/PSR and, most importantly, quality will all be considered as Newcastle aim to bridge the gap between the gap each year.

NewcastleWorld has profiled the eight United players who are currently set to leave at the end of next season.
