Newcastle United must trim the squad this summer to make way for new arrivals with several players already being tipped to leave.

There are several players who are almost certain to leave in the summer shake-up like those the club have been trying to move on for a while, such as Ryan Fraser, Isaac Hayden and Jamal Lewis. There's also those out of contract like Loris Karius.

Then, there are players who have played their part in the first team but may either be deemed surplus to requirements or sellable assets to raise funds.

Callum Wilson has been touted as a possible exit despite Eddie Howe's insistence that he wants him to stay. Kieran Trippier was hunted January and the decision could be made to cash in on the 33-year-old this summer should interest resurface.

Miggy doesn't want to leave

Miguel Almiron is on the chopping block this summer

Another man who is tipped for an exit is Paraguayan winger Miguel Almiron. Miggy appears to have fallen behind Jacob Murphy in the pecking order on the right wing after failing to capture the magic from last season.

The 30-year-old who was at one point Newcastle's most expensive signing has been the absolute definition of hit-and-miss since he arrived at St James' Park. He's shown flashes of genius with purple patches of outstanding form, but he's also been equally frustrating.

Miggy's indecisiveness in the final third has cost Newcastle many times, he's clearly much better when acting on pure instinct. Also, his over-reliance on his left-foot has made him predictable and easy to defend against.


Almiron wants to stay as long as possible

While Miggy has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia, it seems that the Paraguayan has no intention of leaving Newcastle if he can help it.

According to The Chronicle, Almiron, who just signed a new deal last year, wants to stay at Newcastle for as long as possible.

It may be out of his hands, though, as Newcastle will be looking to create some room to play with regards to Financial Fair Play and he could become collateral damage.
