Newcastle United may have to let a player or two go this summer to comply with Profit and Sustainability Rules which has led to some pretty scary headlines over the last few weeks and months.

We, as Newcastle fans, are constantly waking up to new suggestions that our star players could be moved on this summer because of PSR.

Those reports often suggest that Bruno Guimaraes or Alexander Isak would "have to be sold", but the truth is, the club has no intention of selling its best players, even if they do have to sell to balance the books.

It's far more likely that it will be players like Miguel Almiron or Sean Longstaff who are sold. First-team players, yes, but not crucial to the project.

No reunion for Arne Slot and Yankuba Minteh on the cards

It had been claimed that Newcastle were willing to listen to offers for Minteh

Recently, it had been suggested that Newcastle may consider selling one of its future stars before they've even played a minute under Eddie Howe.

Yankuba Minteh was signed from OB Odense in Denmark last summer for around £6.5million and immediately loaned out to Feyenoord to help them defend their Eredivisie title under Arne Slot.

Slot did an amazing job of developing Minteh over the course of that season, and now he's taken over the reins at Liverpool, it was an easy story to link Minteh with a move to Anfield.


Liverpool have no interest in Yankuba Minteh

Those stories started gathering momentum over the weekend with talk of Newcastle willing to listen to offers of around £40million coming out on Saturday and then that figure dropping to £25million on Sunday.

Now The Liverpool Echo have reported that The Reds have 'no interest' in signing Minteh this summer and will turn their attention elsewhere.

That's news that will be greeted with a huge sigh of relief on Tyneside as many fans felt that selling Minteh so soon could be a decision that would come back to haunt us in the future if he went on to Liverpool and became world-class.

What happens with Minteh going forward is still a mystery but we expect Eddie Howe will take a good look at him in pre-season before making any decisions.
