Whilst there will be money available to spend on the squad, Eddie Howe has tempered expectations by reiterating that it will be a case of ‘evolution’ rather than ‘revolution’ next season.

Newcastle have a bloated Premier League squad and so players will have to leave in-order for new faces to join.

Isaac Hayden, Ciaran Clark, Jamal Lewis and Jeff Hendrick were all left out of their 25-man squad in January whilst the need for improvements this summer may also have a few others sweating over their future at the club.

With that in mind, here, we take a look at what Eddie Howe’s strongest starting XI could look like based on players that are ‘most likely’ to still be at the club next campaign.
