According to the Shields Gazette, Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has informed Jack Colback he's been left OUT of the club's 25-man Premier League squad for the season ahead.

It may be a little late to be tinkering with formations, given the new Premier League season starts this weekend, but a number of teams changed systems with the previous campaign well under way. "The team spirit's quite good, and hopefully we replicate that this season". We missed some targets at the beginning and we're paying for that. I have to continue sending my players the right message and giving them confidence about what we are trying to do.

Benitez was frustrated to lose out on Tammy Abraham and Willy Caballero earlier in the summer.

"It is important for the fans to understand that this year will be totally different".

"We have a big squad and a lot of competition but I need to work hard and in the moments I am on the pitch, give my best", the Ghana worldwide explained. "Sometimes it's not what you want, it's what you need and what you can afford now". Average players now cost big money.

Recent reports have the deal nearing completion, as the 21-year-old needs to find valuable match minutes as he progresses in his development.

This suggests SkyBet think the chances of him moving on this summer are highly likely - the only question is where?

Rafael Benitez has expressed an interest in signing the Arsenal striker and admits that he has spoken to Wenger, but Deportivo are also confident of getting back their former star. I don't know if that has been the case.

While expressing his disappointment at the club's transfer dealings, the Spaniard says he has no desire to walk away from St James' Park.
