Newcastle announced the latest squad number changes today after the recent closure of the Summer transfer window.

The three players signed since we last played in the league were Achraf Lazaar, Daryl Murphy and Christian Atsu with these players completing the changes to the previous completed squad list.

With Moussa Sissoko clearing off to pastures new, his sweat free, hardly worked in number was vacant with the number 7 being the same one that Achraf Lazaar had in Italy, so he has taken that.

Daryl Murphy has taken on a number that is the same as his age in the number 33 with on loan winger Christian Atsu taking the number 30 slot.

Like all the other players registered in our squad list, all the new signings are expected to be in contention to play this weekend with our next game on TV.

The game at Derby kicks off at 5:30pm.
