News today that Newcastle have given a trial to a 14-year-old Swedish goalkeeper.
Sulejmen Sarajlic – in Newcastle last week
Sulejmen Sarajlic apparently spent last week training at the Newcastle Academy, according to the Sunday Sun, and he could be moving to Tyneside in the summer.
Sarajlic is already at 6’4″ tall and playing in the Youth and Reserve teams at Swedish Third Division club Raslatt SK.
Sarajlic has also been linked with both Aston Villa and Chelsea, and it remains to be seen if either of these clubs take the lad into their Youth Academies.
Sarajlic’s family hail from Bosnia, and he was very impressive at the Swedish heats of the Nike Premier Cup Football tournament in March, and reports also say he did extremely well last week at Newcastle.
Newcastle currently have two Swedish youngsters at the club, 18 year-old striker Samuel Adjei and 19 year-old goalkeeper Ole Soderberg, and it could be that we have a third Swedish teenager joining the ranks at the Newcastle Youth Academy.
