Newcastle United will reveal the club's new captain and No9 tomorrow.
Rafa Benitez revealed that the announcement will be made by the club's website ahead for Friday night's Championship season-opener against Fulham at Craven Cottage.
Defender Jamaal Lascelles is set to get the armband after skippering Benitez's team in pre-season.
Speaking on BBC Radio Newcastle, Benitez said the identity of the new captain was "not rocket science".
Previous captain Fabricio Coloccini left United this summer.
Newcastle are also without a No9 following the departure of Papiss Cisse last month.
Aleksandar Mitrovic and Dwight Gayle are the obvious candidates for the revered shirt.
