Newcastle Manager Alan Pardew has named a 24-man squad for the tour, with 19 on the plane today and five more players will join the squad later.

The squad will have two bases over the following 10 days – at Dunedin and Wellington.

Here are the players who are part of the Newcastle squad in alphabetical order:

Rolando Aarons, Mehdi Abeid, Jak Alnwick, Sammy Ameobi, Vurnon Anita, Adam Armstrong, Adam Campbell, Jack Colback, Fabricio Coloccini, Siem de Jong, Paul Dummett, Rob Elliot, Yoan Gouffran, Massadio Haidara, Ayoze Perez, Emmanuel Riviere, Lubo Satka, Ryan Taylor, Steven Taylor, Cheick Tiote
Travelling later – Haris Vuckic, Mike Williamson, Freddie Woodman, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa

None of the players who played in the World Cup are on the tour, and they include recent signings Remy Cabella and Daryl Janmaat – although new striker Emmanuel Riviere is in the squad and new signings Ayoze Perez, Jack Colback and Siem de Jong will also travel.

Newcastle will play Sydney FC next Tuesday, 22nd July (7.30pm kick-off local time) at the Forsyth Barr Stadium, in Dunedin, and then on the following Saturday we take on Wellington Phoenix at the beautiful Westpac Stadium in Wellington,

Ivory Coast International Cheick Tiote will join up with the squad later next week.

There is no place on the plane for either Ben Arfa or Sylvain Marveaux, and both French wingers will be moved out of the club this summer – either permanently or on loan.

    Jonas plays another game he gets a contract extension and a pay rise.

    Completely the right decision to freeze him out, in my opinion.

    Been awful for a long long time.

    Competitive game I would imagine.

    But still the correct decision all the same.

    I don’t think he’ll give a stuff mate. Still picking up big wages every week.

    Would rather keep Ameobi or Ferguson as squad players than him.

    pardew was using him wrong aswell his legs were clearly gone and he wanted him to be box to box in a very high enegey game that he clearlly could not do anymore, he made ben arfa more defensive and worse and hell do the same to the new boys we get

    QPR and Sunderland monitoring Tim Cahill?

    I would pay him whatever he wanted to come play for Newcastle for 2 seasons.

    We will miss Ben Arfa. Big potential and marvelous skiller. He should stay for next season.
