Newcastle United set to remove £57m duo from Premier League squad as deadline confirmed - photos

Newcastle United will have to confirm its Premier League squad for the second half of the season ahead of Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest.

Newcastle United's Premier League squad for the second half of the 2023-24 season is set to be confirmed.

It has been a week since the January transfer window closed and Premier League guidance states that all clubs must submit a squad list for the second half of the season within a week of the deadline, which is today (February 8).

The Premier League are set to publish each club's squad ahead of this weekend's round of fixtures.

Following the summer and winter transfer windows, Premier League clubs are required to submit a list of 25 senior players who are eligible to feature in league matches. Senior players not included in a club’s squad list will not be able to play Premier League matches.

Each 2023-24 Premier League squad can include up to 25 players born before January 1, 2002. At least eight players in the 25-man squad must be ‘homegrown’.

A homegrown player is a player born in England or any player registered to an English FA affiliated club for three years before the age of 21.

Players born on or after January 1, 2002 do not need to be included in the 25-man squad in order to be eligible to play.

Unlike previous seasons, no senior players still at the club will miss out on a place in Newcastle's squad for the second half of the campaign. However, the departure of Javier Manquillo during the transfer window and Sandro Tonali's ban until next season leaves Newcastle with just 23 senior players eligible to play.

Joelinton has also been ruled out until the end of the season but will likely be named in the squad just in case his recovery is faster than expected.

Newcastle players that Premier League rules state do not need to be included in Newcastle's squad due to their age are Tino Livramento, Lewis Miley, Lewis Hall, Elliot Anderson and Joe White, who has recently returned from a loan spell at Crewe Alexandra.

Any academy player such as Alex Murphy, Ben Parkinson, Michael Ndiweni, Amadou Diallo and latest signing Alfie Harrison also don't need to be included in the squad.

Newcastle’s expected 23-man squad includes 14 homegrown players and four goalkeepers. Here it is...
