Newcastle United has confirmed the club's retained list for the 2023/24 season

Ciaran Clark and Matty Longstaff are among the players who will leave the Magpies at the end of their contracts, although the latter will continue to receive treatment on the knee injury he suffered in December last year.

Clark, 33, joined United from Aston Villa in August 2016 and was the club's player of the year as they won the Championship title in his first campaign. He made 127 appearances for the Magpies in all competitions, scoring 11 times, and spent last season on loan with Sheffield United, helping them gain promotion to the top flight.

Academy product Longstaff famously scored the winner on his Premier League debut against Manchester United in October 2019. He netted two further goals in a total of 20 appearances, and has spent time on loan with Aberdeen, Mansfield Town and Colchester United. The former England under-20 international is currently undergoing rehabilitation from an anterior cruciate ligament injury, which the club are supporting him through.
