The eight Newcastle United exits that could happen today as Premier League pressure sparks fear

Newcastle United are expected to sort out a lot of business this afternoon ahead of the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability Rules (PSRs) deadline.

With the end of the club's financial year upon us, it's clear that they must begin to balance the books - and do it fast - in order to not incur any potential penalties for violating the regulations. This means the sale of many of their players may happen with a few departures from Eddie Howe's squad already lined up.

Perhaps the furthest ahead is the £30m sale of teenager Yankuba Minteh to Brighton and Hove Albion following discussions with both Everton and Ligue 1 outfit Lyon. The star is understood to have agreed personal terms with the Seagulls as their new manager Fabian Hürzeler looks to make an impact in his first summer in England.

Elsewhere, Nottingham Forest are set to sign Elliot Anderson in another move set to hand Newcastle a major PSR boost. The Magpies academy graduate is likely to be another reluctant sale given he still has another two years on his current contract, but the £35m injection will greatly relieve the club's financial pressures.

In recent days, talk of a deal with Liverpool for winger Anthony Gordon has also sparked interest in the 23-year-old, who is currently in Germany with England at the 2024 European Championships. It's understood that despite talks breaking down earlier this week, the Reds are still interested in the star but whether that major move gets sorted today is unclear.

It would take a lot to move Newcastle's second most expensive signing ever in one afternoon but there is a possibility there if the pressures of the Premier League - and in turn the fears of a points deduction to begin the 2024/25 campaign - are too much to handle.

Alexander Isak is another name that has been constantly linked with moves away from St James' Park this summer, although the £180m price tag that the club have put on him has done a lot to deter many from making a real bid for him. Arsenal and Chelsea have been the most intrigued by the Swedish star and it's been claimed that the Blues may swap as many as three first team players in order to entice Newcastle into selling him.

Miguel Almiron's future with Newcastle appears to still be up in the air, despite having refused to leave the club back in the January transfer window. After getting an eye-watering offer from Saudi Pro League club Al-Shabab, the Paraguayan international stayed firm in his decision to continue in Tyneside but was often seen as surplus to requirements towards the end of last season.

Another star that has received interest from the Saudi Pro League is midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, even after his £100m release clause in his contract expired last weekend. Manchester City and Arsenal are still understood to be interested in him also, but Newcastle actually hold a lot of power in their hands around the Brazilian international now, meaning his exit this afternoon is unlikely.

Two more players that could see themselves departing from St James' Park are striker Callum Wilson and right-back Kieran Trippier. It's claimed that Wilson's representatives could agree on personal terms which would see him swap Newcastle for the Saudi Pro League before the end of the day whilst Bayern Munich's constant interest in Trippier alongside heavy links to Saudi Arabia could mean an exit for the England international.
