Newcastle Have Decisions To Make On Ten Magpies With Contracts Expiring By 2022



There was a surprising report earlier this week that Newcastle and Dwight Gayle had agreed to a three-year extension on reduced wages. As it stands that claim has yet to be confirmed by the club though it could prove to be a wise decision for a couple of reasons.

Despite being thirty-one and not featuring much this season, Gayle retains value as a proven Championship goalscorer. So tying him down long-term means Newcastle can cash in him rather than losing him for nothing this summer.

If Newcastle do end up in the Championship next season, chances are Callum Wilson will want to move on which leaves Gayle as a capable option in the Championship. So while it’s a surprising decision to keep Dwight on the books, there is some logic behind the decision.

There is plenty of other work to do with players out of contract in the summer beyond Gayle. Andy Carroll, Federico Fernandez, Jacob Murphy, and Fabian Schar all are on expiring contracts.

The Chronicle is reporting that Newcastle plan on triggering an option to extend Fabian Schar for another season. Newcastle also reportedly can do the same with Fernandez as well.

Next season, there will also be a few players entering the final year of their contracts. Three of which are Academy products in Paul Dummett along with the Longstaff brothers. None have featured much this season though Dummett has started the last three games at left-back after an injury-plagued past couple of seasons.

Newcastle also have two senior players out on loan in Spain’s La Liga in Florian Lejeune and Yoshinori Muto. Both will return this summer with one year left on their contracts.

The Chronicle has another report detailing Lejeune’s exploits with Alaves where he has been named as their best player of 2021 so far by the CIES Football Observatory.

It’s not gone as well for Muto, who is with Florian’s former club Eibar. The 28-year-old has just one goal in 22 La Liga appearances, though he did score two in two in the Copa del Rey.

The Chronicle reports that Muto would love to remain with Eibar though whether that feeling is mutual remains to be seen.

Newcastle have decisions to make but the uncertainty of our Premier League future is likely causing some consternation for both the club and players. So we could see a few of these contract sagas play out into the final few weeks of the season.

    Like I said fans throwing petrol on the conspiracy fire. He has not once said anything about 10% 10% 80% splits ever, fact. What I would suggest for anyone who wants to know about Twitter and what’s on there is to go look? If not I’d leave it to people who do understand it and not get wound up by conspiracy theories made up by there own fanbase

    That’s right toon22, the imbecile manager of ours doesn’t know the meaning of ‘playing your cards close to your chest.’

    The bloke should have been sacked immediately after the Brighton debacle. The clubs rotten to the core, I despise them all.

    Three fat pigs, Ashley, Charnley and Bruce gorging themselves on what little remains of our great club.

    We could have been well clear of relegation if cabbage head had shown some guts and tried to win the winnable games.

    Keep an open mind as you read this as this is the truth and the reality.

    Im not engaging with a certain person..No talking to him, no talking of him, no asides to others about him..for over a week..nothing no interaction at all.

    OK ?

    I then happen across a post from this person towards Munster but it also includes an abusive nasty reference to me .

    What would you do ?

    A, Ignore it

    B, Reply as you think it nasty, uncalled for, as you have not uttered a bad word

    C Reply with the knowledge that it will be turned around on you as though you started the trouble and would receive criticism from others.

    Thats all it was.

    Imagine if the first nasty post did not exist ?

    I would have nothing to say .

    Now do you understand ?

    De Marco is a QC

    The barristers taking on the case are Nick De Marco QC and Shaheed Fatima QC – two barristers with years of experience behind them and countless high-profile victories.

    Hi fella, nothing has changed in the way Ashley is running Newcastle, the remit has always been to finish in the top 17 spending the least amount possible to achieve that objective, running any club in such a cavalier fashion is always a huge gamble and sooner or later will always catch up with you, but looking at the whole situation it really looks like Ashley doesn`t really care if we are relegated or not, i dont think anyone on planet earth will ever understand what goes through Mike Ashleys mind.

    Everyday is a school day, Northern Macedonia is just Macedonia with a new name because the Greeks didn’t want them being called just Macedonia. They beat Germany by the way 😮

    magicmac54,
    Yes came back on Tuesday and straight on to nightshift, only for a week then were spending a week on the tanker, so back on days, much better turning round from nights at work rather than at home. What were you doing in the garden, I’m quite a keen gardener myself, I just planted all my dahlia tubers early this year trying to get a head start on their bloom, tulips are coming up nicely, just starting to flower as I’ve came away.

    magicmac54,
    I see the NM team included Alioski another Leeds player, they’ve been back in the PL one season and already have a player playing for England. That’s the difference between having a renowned coach and Steve Bruce.

    In the championship we all really thought Lascelles was going to make the world cup in Russia, he had his own song for it, the lad must have been buzzing. What a shame those players Rafa brought in like Lejuene and Scharwill be shipped out and replaced with Krafths and Hendricks, although St Max was a very good spot.

    magicmac54,
    I don’t mind nights at all, two hour lunches, longer breaks and pretty much left to our own devices, also the beaty of not having to set an alarm. The downside is the discomfort of turning back round on to days when you get off, luckily we won’t have that problem this time.
