Newcastle United have today revealed their 25 man Premier League squad for the rest of this season.
The 25 man squad has to be submitted to the Premier League after each summer transfer window and then again after the January one.
A maximum of 17 senior players can be non-homegrown – a homegrown Player means a player who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).
Newcastle have named 16 non-homegrown and nine who are – Jack Colback, Karl Darlow, Paul Dummett, Rob Elliot, Tim Krul, Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey, Steven Taylor and Andros Townsend.
Players born on or after 1st January 1994 are additional to the senior squad – with Chancel Mbemba, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Rolando Aarons and Kevin Mbabu amongst those classed as under 21 players and therefore eligible to feature throughout the season, on top of those named in the official 25 man Premier League squad.
