Steve Bruce’s updated 25-man squad has now been confirmed by the Premier League, with the club making 3 changes.
Jetro Willems (loan ended early following knee injury), Paul Dummett (out for the season via injury) and Ki Sung-yueng (released) drop out, being replaced by new boys Danny Rose, Valentino Lazaro & Nabil Bentaleb.
Elsewhere, there’s still no room for Henri Saivet and Jack Colback.
Here’s our updated 25-man squad for the remainder of the season (* = Players qualifying as ‘homegrown’):
Almiron Rejala, Miguel Angel
Apolinario De Lira, Joelinton Cassio
Carroll, Andrew Thomas*
Gayle, Dwight Devon Boyd*
Hayden, Isaac Scot*
Krafth, Emil Henry Kristoffer
Lazaro, Valentin Lando
Lejeune, Florian Gregoire Claude
Longstaff, Sean David*
Manquillo Gaitan, Javier
Ritchie, Matthew Thomas*
Rose, Daniel Lee*
Saint Maximin, Allan Irenee
Schar, Fabian Lukas
Twasam, Christian Atsu
No real surprises here, with unfortunate injuries to Willems and Dummett and Ki’s release making room for our three new boys.
