After only one season in the Championship, Newcastle have secured passage back to the Premier League at the first attempt. Some pundits have already stated that Newcastle doesn’t have enough quality in its squad to be competitive in the Premier League and that 5-6 new signings are needed.
This summer manager Rafa Benitez will be hoping to strengthen his squad ahead of their return. However that will of course depend on how much money the manager is given by owner Mike Ashley and who he can attract to the North East. If Rafa is able to bring in the 5-6 new faces the media is saying he needs, where will Newcastle finish next season? Top half, middle or relegation places?
