The players in question are Tim Krul, Massadio Haidara, Jack Colback and Emmanuel Riviere, and Benitez wants them all out in order to free up space to bring in some last minute acquisitions for the new season, as reported by the Star.

Ritchie said: "I don't think we're going to struggle".

Newcastle United have endured a largely frustrating period in the summer transfer window so far but winger Ritchie has gone on to reveal that manager Rafael Benitez is not losing sleep regarding the issue at the moment as he believes that the Spaniard never panics, even in hard situations.

Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner has urged his side to focus on getting every aspect of their game plan right against Newcastle United on Sunday as the two promoted clubs face each other in the Premier League for the first time.

As for Newcastle's specific problems, the manager sees players at the club who are on "good (Premier League?) salaries" but Premier League clubs don't see them as good enough. "It's important for us to get points on the board and to put in a good performance".

"We would go a goal down, but we would come back and win the game".

Rafa Benitez says Newcastle must trim their squad if they are to make further signings before the transfer deadline. "We know where we are and what we want".

"Hopefully we can continue to work as we did on Sunday, especially first-half when we sort of had control of the game".

'We have a lot of players to move out before we can move in.

"Yeah they won the Championship and finished last season on a high but it nearly makes me sick that the players and manager put their heart and soul into the league and then they are not backed to improve".
