Eddie Howe has today submitted his 25-man squad for Newcastle United's 2023/24 Premier League campaign and has not had to exclude any senior players.

Last week, Mark Gillespie, Emil Krafth, Javier Manquillo, and Matt Ritchie missed out on the Magpies' initial 2023/24 Champions League squad due to UEFA's stricter registration rules.

Howe was only able to name 23 senior players for the six group stage games against AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, and Borussia Dortmund, though Elliot Anderson and Lewis Miley were able to be left off the list and still be eligible due to being "club-trained" and born after the 1st of January, 2022.

Things are more lenient in the Premier League, thankfully, meaning that Gillespie, Krafth, Manquillo, and Ritchie can play for Newcastle if required to. This is because in addition to Anderson and Miley, new signings Tino Livramento and Lewis Hall don't need to be registered because of their young age.

As a reminder, here are the full rules for Premier League squad registration:

Each squad must contain no more than 17 players who do not fulfil the "Home Grown Player" (HGP) criteria. The rest of the squad, up to a total of 25 players, must be "Home Grown".

What is a Home-Grown Player?

A "Home-Grown Player" means a player who, irrespective of nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to The Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).

Rules on U21 players

Under-21 players are eligible over and above the limit of 25 players per squad. For the 2023/24 campaign, Under-21 players will have been born on or after 1 January 2002.

And here's how our squad will look for the first half of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign:

14 of the squad are classed as being "Home Grown", while 11 are "Non-Home Grown", and the remaining four are under-21.

This means Howe will have at least 29 players available to him until the January transfer window opens, with all players from the U21s and Academy also eligible to feature.
