Just in!!! Four Newcastle players under threat of been demoted as Champion’s League qualification boosts transfer dream

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe could demote four key players in the transfer window as he gears his squad up for Champions League football.

It’s official. Newcastle United are back in the Champions League after a two-decade-long hiatus. And with the overwhelming financial support of Saudi Arabia, it feels like the sky is the limit for Eddie Howe’s project ahead of the summer transfer window.

Howe has already started upgrading his squad with Champions League-quality players like Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak.

But there are still plenty of names among his ranks that make it seem like he has massively overachieved by guiding the Magpies into Europe’s premier competition in his first full season.

Express Sport identifies four important Newcastle stars that could be headed for lesser roles after the club’s latest recruitment drive.

Fabian Schar

Fabian Schar has enjoyed arguably his best season as a Newcastle player since joining in 2018, forming a formidable partnership with Sven Botman.

But the Switzerland international is 32 this year, and what better time for Howe to recruit an elite-level successor?

Howe needs stronger central-defensive depth, though, and signing Botman’s long-term partner sooner rather than later would be wise.
