For a list of all Newcastle players, major or minor, with a Wikipedia article, see Category:Newcastle United F.C. players. For the current Newcastle first-team squad, see Newcastle United F.C.#First-team_squad.

Below is a list of notable footballers who have played for Newcastle United. Generally, this means players that have played 100 or more first-class matches for the club. However, some players who have played fewer matches are also included; this includes the club's founder members, players from the club's pre-Football League days, when they played fewer matches in a season than the present day, and some players who fell just short of the 100 total but made significant contributions to the club's history (e.g. Keegan, Ferdinand, Asprilla).

Players are listed according to the date they signed for the club. Appearances and goals are for first-team competitive matches only; wartime matches are excluded. Substitute appearances included. Statistics correct as of 28 August 2011.
