Newcastle United set to fly out to Saudi Arabia – Report
Newcastle United are going to fly out to Saudi Arabia according to a media exclusive on Thursday afternoon.
The Mail say that their information is that the NUFC squad will travel later this month.
After the home match on Saturday against Watford, Newcastle then play Leeds away on the following Saturday (22 January).
However, with currently no scheduled match for 17 days after that Leeds game, the report saying Newcastle United will travel out to Saudi Arabia following the trip to Elland Road.
The Mail describe the trip as a warm weather training camp but also raise the possibility of some PR engagements. However, they say they haven’t heard of any plans for Eddie Howe and the NUFC playing squad to meet Mohammed bin Salman.
If this trip to Saudi Arabia has indeed now been organised, it would appear to confirm that Newcastle United won’t play either of their postponed games against Everton and Southampton, until after the transfer window has ended.
If that visit happens then we are looking at February at the very earliest for any rearranged game(s).
Saturday 15 January 3pm – Watford home
Saturday 22 January 3pm – Leeds away
(Weekend of Saturday 5 February – FA Cup fourth round)
Tuesday 8 February 7.45pm – Everton Home (BT Sport)
Sunday 13 February 2pm – Aston Villa Home (Sky Sports)
Saturday 26 February 3pm – Brentford Away
