Ranked! Newcastle United's most valuable players as a spending spree is planned for January

A spending spree in January has been predicted for Newcastle United – but who are their current most valuable assets?

Following the completion of the Saudi-led takeover, Newcastle are braced for a potential spending spree in January to alleviate relegation fears.

Despite calls for patience and the consortium stressing that this is a long-term project, predictions recently have suggested that they could have close to £200m to spend on new recruits.

However, because their current 25-man squad is full, any incomings would have to be balanced by players leaving the club.

But who could that be and what sort of transfer fees could they expect to receive for some of these players?

Using data provided by Transfermarkt.com, we have listed the 16 ‘most valuable’ players in the current Newcastle United squad.

Do these market values shock you? Has anybody been over or undervalued?
