Following our immediate promotion back to the Premier League, it has been confirmed in recent weeks that Rafa Benitez will remain at the club after positive talks with Mike Ashley.
Benitez now faces his biggest task yet; building a squad capable of competing at Premier League level.
With this in mind, another summer of big changes can be expected on Tyneside, with Newcastle’s squad expected to have endured a real shake up come August.
See below for the 10 players I expect to see leave the club this summer as part of the latest squad rebuild:
1. Matz Sels
The Belgian international was signed last summer with every intention of becoming Newcastle no.1. Several edgy displays saw him not only lose his first team spot, but a place in the squad all together. With Elliot, Darlow and Krul all on our books, a return to Belgium is on the cards.
