Alan Pardew is ready to listen to offers for several of his players as he looks to clear the decks at Newcastle after a poor season.
While the Magpies have made steady progress in the Europa League the north-east outfit finds themselves in the midst of a relegation battle in the Premier League, slipping to within three points of the drop zone following Saturday's 4-0 defeat at Manchester City.
The Toon are confident they will survive after investing heavily in the squad during the January transfer window, bringing in six new players at the turn of the year.
Pardew is now looking to recoup some of the money he spent on the new arrivals this summer as he looks to either sell or let go the players he feels have underperformed this season.
Goalkeeper Steve Harper and full-back Danny Simpson have already confirmed they will be leaving St James' Park in July, while the Newcastle boss is open to offers for Dan Gosling, Mike Williamson, Gabriel Obertan, Romain Amalfitano and Mehdi Abeid.
Pardew is also ready to let some of the club's younger players leave, but only on loan, with Shane Ferguson, Haris Vuckic and Sammy Ameobi set to be made available on a temporary basis.
