Lazaar recently returned to training after not featuring in the last three pre-season matches. He did play a role in the Premier League Asia Trophy where he made appearances in both games.
The Moroccan left-back went on loan to Sheffield Wednesday this past January under Steve Bruce. He still only managed 4 appearances.
He joined Newcastle in the summer of 2016 as a late window signing from Palermo. However, he has made only 10 first-team appearances in his three years at Newcastle.
Steve Bruce reportedly was willing to give all players a clean slate at Newcastle this summer. It appears that most of the players who were out on loan under Rafa Benitez will not be part of the squad under Bruce.
This may also include Rolando Aarons who was reported to be surplus to requirements yesterday.
Though Aarons played a big role in pre-season and he may still be one to make the squad. He was reported to be moving on loan to either Sheffield Wednesday or Wigan but there have been no further reports on either of those moves.
