With Champions League football secured, Newcastle are now looking to attack the summer with vigour and build a more competitive squad.


Yasir Al-Rumayyan was present during Newcastle’s 0-0 draw against Leicester City and the club chairman has been left impressed with the set-up Howe is built.



The Newcastle board are prepared to back the manager with big money in the summer to build a squad that can compete in the Champions League.


And it has been claimed that the Newcastle boss is looking to bring five to six new signings for his first team.



The Magpies manager wants to strengthen several areas of his squad in order to build more depth.


Financial Fair Play rules mean Newcastle will still have some restrictions on how much they can spend.



But the club do not want to squander the opportunity that has presented itself by being in the Champions League.


Howe has hinted that he wants to build two elevens and wants a squad that can make an impact in the latter stages of next season.
