Tamas Kadar will need to put his international career on hold for the sake of Newcastle United, and he doesn’t mind that one little bit.

Tamas Kadar – wants to help Newcastle to promotion

The 6′ 2″ defender was set to be called up by Hungary for the prestigious Under-20 World Cup in Egypt in late September, but Newcastle have asked Kadar to stay on Tyneside, and miss the 3 week long tournament, to help the Tyneside club.

The 19-year-old very promising youngster seems happy to stay, as it means he is thought highly of by manager Chris Hughton.

Kadar told the Shields Gazette today:

“Newcastle said I can’t go,” “I will stay here and do my best because my club is Newcastle, and if Newcastle say, ‘stay here’, then I stay here.”

“It’s the World Cup for the Under-20s, which is for three weeks.” “It’s a long time to be away from here, and I want to play in the Newcastle first team.”

“If I go home, I’ll do my best there, but if I stay here, then I’ll do my best for Newcastle.’ “Wherever I am, I want to play.”

Tamas is a great prospect at Newcastle, but if the club signs 20 year old Craig Cathcart, from the Red Devils, on loan this coming Tuesday, there will be significant competition for the Hungarian in central defense.

But Kadar  can also play at left back, and if Jose Enrique is ever injured this season, Tamas could get his chance at left-back. That’s the way Seb Bassong got his breakthrough last year at Newcastle, and we all know how good the Frenchman turned out.

Kadar got  his first start against Lee Clark’s Huddersfield a week last Wednesday alongside Danny Simpson.

And Kadar was a late substitute in Monday night’s great 1-0 win over Leicester City, when he turned out in central midfield as Newcastle saw that game out.

Hungary begin their Under-20 World Cup campaign against Honduras on September 27.

    Are Newcastle allowed to refuse to release him when he is called up . I thought FiFa rules meant that clubs where not allowed to pull thier players out of selection unless injured

    I hope we don’t take such maturity for granted. We seen to have a very level headed and talented group of youngsters that we could build a very special team around – we need to cut them some slack when things get a little easier. Top marks to the lad.

    The attitude coming from these youngsters is spot on…I think they should be bled in the cups to get experience.

    I really haven’t missed players like Martins,Duke,Duffer and Owen to name a few,glad they have gone.

    SirJay, are you suggesting some kind of ritual to mollify the gods of football, bleeding the youngsters is going a bit far innit.

    I’m sure he will get some starts, what with the hectic schedule coming up. Player rotation is going to be paramount.

    Good attitude from the lad, and the others too at the mo.

    ‘mon the lads.

    There are good times ahead if this group continue to mature . A young team growing together , hopefully getting us promoted and then a push towards the top half of the prem . When these guys are heading into thier prime in another 4-5 years we could be the new Arsenal . With Kadar as the new Viera & Ranger the new Henry all lead by S Taylor . Well i can dream cant i ? 😉
