What is the latest news?
Andy Carroll and defender Javier Manquillo have agreed new contracts which will see them remain at the club beyond the end of the current season.
In addition, 20-year-old midfielder Matty Longstaff has agreed a short-term extension to his existing deal, which was due to expire at the end of this month, with the Magpies still attempting to persuade him to commit his future to the club amid interest from Serie A side Udinese.
Longstaff, whose longer-term future remains uncertain, joins loan signings Danny Rose and Nabil Bentaleb in extending for the remainder of the campaign, while Inter Milan winger Valentino Lazaro is expected to formally follow suit within days after reaching an agreement in principle with his parent club.
Rob Elliot, Jack Colback and Jamie Sterry will leave the club when their contracts run out on June 30.
What are they saying?
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has congratulated Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp on winning their first league title in 30 years, but was left ruing some earlier results that gave the Reds the chance to end their drought.
Needing a win to keep their extremely slim chances of retaining the Premier League title alive, Guardiola’s side lost 2-1 away to Chelsea on Thursday night despite a superb free-kick goal by Kevin De Bruyne.
“Congratulations for Liverpool fans, the manager, the players. Well deserved, good champions,” Guardiola said.
“This season we dropped points at the beginning, some unfairly and some because we made mistakes like today. We’ve got to be more consistent,” the 49-year-old explained as he looked back on the season.
“Two seasons ago we were 25 points in front of Liverpool and the next season they recovered. Now we’ve got to recover.”
What are the odds?
Newcastle United to win 14/1
Manchester City to win 1/6
What is our prediction?
Newcastle will head into Sunday’s FA Cup showdown with City knowing their top-flight status is all but mathematically assured having reached 39 points with seven games to play. Will this mean they relax against a City team smarting from conceding their league title to Liverpool and determined to mop up any remaining silverware?
