Newcastle United have announced the retained list and players who will be leaving the club at the end of this month.
Three first-team players – Massadio Haidara (54 appearances), Jesus Gamez (10 appearances) and Curtis Good (2 appearances) will leave the club this month.
Jesus Gamez – made only 10 appearances for Newcastle
This is how the Newcastle website announced the rest of the changes:
“The club has offered new deals to youngsters Luke Charman and Callum Roberts and are currently in negotiations with Alex Gilliead in relation to a new contract.”
“A further 18 players will leave the club at under-23 level – Yannick Aziakonou, Kyle Cameron, Yasin Ben El-Mhanni, Stuart Findlay, Owen Gallacher, Macaulay Gillesphey, Mackenzie Heaney, Tom Heardman, Jack Hunter, Ben Kitchen, Michael Newberry, Brendan Pearson, Callum Smith, Liam Smith, Craig Spooner, Dan Ward, Callum Williams and Paul Woolston.”
“Meanwhile, scholars Thomas Allan, Lewis Cass, Matthew Longstaff, Oliver Walters, Kelland Watts and Adam Wilson have all been offered professional contracts.”
“Isaac Gamblin, Mace Goodridge, Jack Robson and Kurtis Russell have been released from the club’s Academy.”
Rafa Benitez put out a message to those players leaving Newcastle United this summer:
“I would like to say thank you to the players who are leaving us this summer for their hard work and commitment while with the club.”
“Letting players go is always a difficult decision and I wish each of them only the best for their football careers.”
It looks like 25 players at all levels will leave the club at the end of the month.
There are no real suprises in the list of players released.
