Benitez has compared the Magpies summer business with that of the other two promoted teams Huddersfield and Brighton, both of whom have each strengthened with at least 10 new players.

Dwight Gayle had been a doubt for Benitez's side after he had been struggling to overcome with illness, however, he is expected to be available to join up with the Magpies, which will give them an added boost in the striker's department.
