Securing a Champions League spot seems improbable given the current form of Eddie Howe’s team, but opportunities for Europa League or Conference League qualification remain viable.

Reports from The Shields Gazette suggest that Loris Karius, Mark Gillespie, Paul Dummett, and Matt Ritchie, all of whom are nearing the end of their contracts, are on the verge of exiting the club. Being peripheral figures under Eddie Howe, it’s highly probable they’ll seek new opportunities elsewhere. Additionally, loaned players Jeff Hendrick and Kell Watts are set to see their contracts expire, facing an uphill battle to prove their worth for a place in the first-team setup.

In order to progress, Newcastle must aim higher in their player acquisitions, recognizing the need for talent of a higher caliber. While the club is undergoing a transformation under the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), success cannot be indefinitely postponed.
