A large poster van displaying an image of the murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi will be prominent around St James’ Park before Newcastle’s first game under Saudi ownership on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Nuno Espirito Santo insists he has too much on his plate ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Newcastle to concern himself with the £305million takeover.

He said: ‘I have enough other things to think about honestly.’

Among the issues for Nuno to solve is Harry Kane’s poor form. ‘We are relaxed. We know Harry is more than goals,’ he said.
