Super Eagles forward Sone Aluko and his Hull City side were relegated from the English Premiership following their 0-0 draw against Manchester United on the last day of the season.
Aluko was brought on for Dame N'doye on 71st minutes to add more attacking threat, but it proved futile, as Manchester United despite losing Maroune Fellaini through a red card, held on for the draw.
Hull City joins Queens Park Rangers and Burnley among the three teams relegated to the Championship division.
Newcastle, on their part secured their Premiership status thanks to a 2-0 home win against West Ham United with goals coming from Moussa Sissoko and Jonas Guitierrez.
Meanwhile, the duo of AFC Bournemouth and Watford City were promoted to the EPL after finishing first and second respectively.
The third team will be decided on Monday May 25 when Middlesborough take on Norwich in the play-off final in Wembley Stadium.
