Newcastle United’s squad is full to the brim of contracted players heading into the new 2022-23 Premier League season.
The Magpies first-team returned to pre-season training last week with several players entering the final year of their contracts at St James’s Park.
But there are many players still with plenty of time remaining on their current deals, for better or worse.
New signing Sven Botman penned a five-year deal at the club last week. Fellow summer signings Nick Pope and Matt Targett both four-years contracts last month.
But last year, several first team fringe players agreed new deals at the club, which now makes offloading them difficult with head coach Eddie Howe needing to sell players in order to strengthen his squad further this summer.

2. Matt Ritchie - 2023
A player who may have already played his last game for the club. Ritchie has just a year left on his current deal having signed a three-year contract extension back in 2020.
3. Jonjo Shelvey - 2023
Signed a three-year extension along with Ritchie in 2020. Has proven to be a useful member of the squad under Eddie Howe. He will trigger a one-year extension if he plays another three games for the club.

4. Federico Fernandez - 2023
The Argentinian defender’s future on Tyneside is uncertain and he has just a year left on his current deal. At 33-years-old, he is unlikely to be handed another contract at Newcastle.
