Newcastle United’s summer business saw a flurry of outgoings early in the summer and despite being linked with their fair-share of players, very little activity occurred as the window shut on deadline day.
Five senior players departed Tyneside this summer permanently whilst seven others left St James’s Park on-loan to search for regular first-team football.
There were also a handful of former-academy prospects who, for one reason or another, failed to make the grade at Newcastle and were released this summer.
Here, we take you through the players who left Newcastle United this summer to see where they are now and how they are getting on at their new clubs, or not in some cases.
Is there anyone you think we have missed out?

6. Matty Longstaff - Aberdeen (loan)
It was a surprise to many to see Longstaff heading for Scotland when it was announced he had left Newcastle on-loan earlier this summer. The midfielder started both of his first two SPL games whilst at Pittodrie, but was an unused substitute during their 1-0 loss to St Johnstone on Saturday. (Photo by Catherine Ivill/Getty Images)

7. Kelland Watts - Wigan Athletic (loan)
After a promising pre-season, Watts was loaned out to League One side Wigan Athletic. Wigan currently sit top of the table ahead of Sunderland and Watts has played a pivotal role, playing every minute of all six league games he’s been available for. (Photo by Stu Forster/Getty Images)
