Five Newcastle players are at risk of being sold in a rush to earn funds this summer.



Newcastle United may sell five players to increase their finances by the end of the month to comply with Premier League rules. Selling young players is the simplest and quickest way to earn funds.

Newcastle are scrambling to raise funds by the end of June in order to remain inside the Premier League’s financial constraints.

Older assets, such as Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron, who is presently playing for Paraguay, are proving difficult to sell this early in the year. The most interesting moves done in June included young players, putting some young Newcastle stars at risk of being traded before they achieve their full potential on Tyneside.

Yankuba Minteh is Newcastle’s top pick to dump and earn up to £40 million, but a deal with Everton has stopped over the price, despite the player’s desire to move to Merseyside rather than abroad.

Eddie Howe and club boss Amanda Staveley will face a difficult weekend in their search for a sale, while competitors may target United’s top young prospects. Newcastle has lost talented young players for decades. Paul Gascoigne left Spurs in the 1980s, and Chris Waddle, Peter Beardsley, and other players went on to establish their reputations elsewhere. More recently, Ivan Toney was on the books and rose to prominence in England after leaving Tyneside.

In football accounting, young, home-grown assets are pure profit, thus selling someone from the academy is significant. However, this is typically the opposite of what supporters desire to see. So, who can go?

Yankuba Minteh
Given that he has yet to play for the first team, it is surprising that he is the subject of transfer speculation. Caught the spotlight on loan scoring for Feyenoord last season, totaling 13 for the club and Gambia.

Was only signed from Odense last summer for £6 million, and a sale would alleviate the Geordies’ financial concerns ahead of the June 30 accounts health check.

There is interest from the continent, particularly Lyon, but the player wants to show himself in the Premier League and will not agree to the trade until forced.

Can Everton relaunch their proposed agreement and convince Newcastle to lower the £40 million price?

Sell rating: 5/5.

Price: £32 million.
