Leeds United are the next Premier League visitors to St James’ Park.

However, there are still 39 days left, with a World Cup to be played in the meantime.

Six Newcastle United players are absent in Qatar, five members of the first team (Trippier, Pope, Wilson, Brono and Schar), with Garang Kuol also present in the Australian squad.

Newcastle United players who are not taking part in the World Cup are currently spending time on a combination of vacation and personal training plan away from the NUFC training ground, where major essential work is currently underway, to help to make it suitable for its purpose.

The Newcastle United first-team will then gather for a warm-weather training camp in Saudi Arabia, which flies away on Sunday December 4, to begin preparations for a return to competition. It will be Bournemouth’s League Cup match on Wednesday December 21, ahead of Leicester in the Premier League on Boxing Day, before home Leeds wrap up 2022 at St James’ Park on the last day of the year.

Various Newcastle United players have been spotted on holiday over the past week, but now a couple have been spotted training in Dubai, with Leeds star Liam Coper among others.

Eddie Howe got the first-team squad in absolute fitness (compared to the guy we used to have…), with the Newcastle United side often having a clear advantage over their opponents , especially in the later stages of matches, thanks to their level of fitness.
