NUFC agree double deal, but Andy Carroll told he’s leaving & three left in limbo – The Times

A revealing new report has emerged from The Times on the future of SIX Newcastle United players at risk of seeing their contracts expire this summer.

Martin Hardy’s piece states that Dwight Gayle has signed a new three-year deal at the club, also claiming that the club have now activated a clause in Fabian Schar’s contract to renew his deal until 30th June 2022.

It’s not so good news for Andy Carroll, however, with the report revealing that the 32-year-old striker WILL be released when his deal expires at the end of next month.

Elsewhere, The Times state that no agreement has been reached as of yet over potential extensions for Jacob Murphy and Federico Fernandez, while Paul Dummett is also waiting on a decision to be made regarding his future.

This comes after Steve Bruce confirmed in a Thursday morning press conference that there is a clause in the Geordie defender’s contract that allows us to extend his stay at St James’ Park for another year.

It would not surprise me if new deals for Gayle and Schar are to help us secure a transfer fee this summer, rather than lose both for nothing.

A decision to release Carroll is right one given his lack of game time or goals, however it’s fair to say Jacob Murphy and Federico Fernandez have established themselves as reliable squad players worth of extensions.

  1. I’d have signed Dummett & Murphy up long before Gayle!!.

    Don’t dislike Gayle, but his record suggests he’s a far better Championship player than PL.

    He’s a big drop off as back up to Wilson that’s for sure.


  2. What an ABSOLUTE joke!! Gayle renewed contract, bizarre, confounding & unbelievable; what a laughing stock this club has become.
