As we reported earlier today we have a number of good youngsters at the Newcastle club right now.
Ben Tozer – future star ion the making
Ben was signed from Swindon Town in the January transfer window, and fast-tracked into the Newcastle Reserve team under Sadler. To keep his development going at a really fast pace we will probably need to send a few of the brighter stars out for 6 months at a Championship side, as we did with Andy Carroll and Tim Krul last August.
Ben captained the Reserves to victory on Wednesday night, since David Edgar is now in the first team squad of 16. While Ben finds it difficult right now to make it into the first team squad for games, he is nevertheless still excited about his future on Tyneside.
Ben talked today:
â€œItâ€™s tough at the moment because the team are doing well and you never know what the manager is thinking. You want to impress so much and sometimes you try too hard and do something stupid,â€
â€œBut I knew it was going to be tough when I joined and Iâ€™m really enjoying the chance to learn and develop under this manager.”
â€œI donâ€™t think anything is going to happen this season â€“ maybe next year. Iâ€™ve got to go away and come back the way he wants me to really.â€
Since Kevin has already said he needs an experienced left back to challenge Jose Enrique, we think Ben will go out on loan early next season to aid in his development.
That’s his next step to stardom at Newcastle United.
