3 names missing as Newcastle United squad numbers released for 2018/19
The Newcastle United squad numbers for the 2018/19 season have been released.
On Friday the club announcing that 27 players had been handed numbers ahead of the Tottenham match tomorrow.
One thing that does appear to be confirmed is that Achraf Lazaar, Henri Saivet and Rolando Aarons have no future at Newcastle under Rafa Benitez.
None of the trio were handed a squad number and of course could still be sold to clubs abroad for the remainder of August, or loaned to clubs in England below the Premier League for the rest of this month.
You can only name a maximum of 25 senior Premier League players in your official PL squad once the transfer window ends.
This doesn’t include those who qualify as Under 21 players (born on or after 1 January 1997) and of these 27 players given squad numbers, three of them – Woodman, Longstaff and Roberts meet that criteria.
So Rafa Benitez actually has only 24 senior ones who have been given a squad number.
Deadline day signings Federico Fernandez has the number 18 shirt, whilst Salomon Rondon will of course wear number nine.
Ki Sung-yueng and Fabian Schar have the numbers four and five respectively.
Yoshinori Muto will wear number 13 and Kenedy once again taking 15 and Martin Dúbravka the number 12 shirt
It remains to be seen if the likes of Sean Longstaff, Freddie Woodman and Callum Roberts are loaned out as well in order to get regular football, plus of course other young players who weren’t handed a squad number.
