Fulham new boy Sone Aluko, a free transfer from Hull, is set to make his debut in attack after Ross McCormack, who scored 42 goals in two seasons with Fulham, joined Aston Villa for £12million on Thursday morning.

Goalkeeper David Button, full-backs Scott Malone and Denis Odoi, centre-half Tomas Kalas and midfielders Floyd Ayite and Kevin McDonald have also arrived this summer and are pushing for debuts.

Defender Ryan Fredericks is out after ankle surgery but striker Cauley Woodrow hopes to overcome an ankle knock.

Title favourites Newcastle begin a new chapter after relegation forced a heavy turnover of players.

Dwight Gayle, Matt Ritchie, Matz Sels, Jesus Gamez, Issac Hayden, Grant Hanley, Ciaran Clark and Mohamed Diame have all arrived in the summer and Rafael Benitez will be expected to hands debuts to many of those.

Diame, the latest of the incomers, was not awarded a squad number in the initial allocation but may yet feature.

Jamaal Lascelles has been named as captain after just 10 starts for the club.
