A document on the EPL’s website reveals the updated contract status of every Magpies player and while there are very few surprises, there are some notable confirmations.
Dwight Gayle looks set to stay put on Tyneside, while one-year options on Paul Dummett and Fabian Schar are believed to have been activated.
Federico Fernandez’s future is not yet confirmed. There are question marks over Andy Carroll and whether or not he’ll join Christian Atsu and Henri Saivet out the exit door.
