Newcastle United 2022/23 predicted starting XI amid rumours surrounding Manchester United, Leeds United and Benfica stars

The Premier League has drawn to a close and for Newcastle United, the rumour-mill is beginning to ramp up.

It is set to be a very busy few months at St James’s Park as Eddie Howe and the new owners head into their first summer transfer window.

Unlike in January where their Premier League status was unknown, Newcastle can enter the window in a strong position with big aspirations of improving their squad as they aim to move up the table.

Their recruitment in January was pretty much flawless with every signing contributing greatly to their recent transformation.
