We may not be getting as many first teamers into Newcastle during the January transfer window, as much as we’d like, but we are definitely getting some star youngsters in as we hear another youngsters, this time 18 year old Hungarian midfield starlet Andras Gosztonyi is on his way to Tyneside from his club MTK Budapest for a week’s trial.
Andras Gosztonyi – 18 year old Hungarian midfielder
Of course another Hungarian, then 17 year-old Tamas Kadar joined us a year ago and was near to making his first team debut last Wednesday, and has been on the subs bench for the last few games.
Andras started out as a striker but has played in midfield when he’s represented the Hungarian Under-19 side, and the youngster is set to spend a week on trial at St James’ Park.
Joe Kinnear will also be looking at even more youngsters next Tuesday in the trial game to take place behind closed doors.
Joe has told the Sunday Sun today that he will run the rule over three more Scandinavian trialists alongside Peter Lovenkrands in the friendly match on Tuesday.
The trio of Norway and Sweden Under-21 internationals — recommended to Kinnear by veteran Norwegian agent Rune Hauge — are ones for the future, rather than players to be pitched into Newcastle’s relegation battle.
Joe told the Sunday Sun today:
“Three youngsters will play,” “All three of them are Under-21 internationals. Two play for Norway and one for Sweden.”
“One is a centre-back, one is a left-back and the other is a midfielder.”
“We will take a look at them. But I am not thinking about them for the first team.”
Peter Lovernkrands, the two potential loan signings, whoever they are, and the three Scandanavian youngsters will all play in the trial game on Tuesday, and we hope to hear some news from Joe after that.
