Haris Vuckic May Go Out On Loan Next Season

9:07 am, Friday, July 16th, 2010 by Ed Harrison · 19 Comments

James Perch, Newcastle’s  new 24 year-old signing from Nottingham Forest, will make his debut for the club tomorrow afternoon at Carlisle United.

James Perch – new signing will make debut tomorrow

Hughton has said that Perch will start tomorrow, and Chris will likely make significant changes at half-time.

Obviously Hughotn will use the first game to build the fitness and conditioning of his players, fresh form their exploits in Dublin, Ireland, in preparation for their August 16th first PL game at Old Trafford.

Chris said:

“The lads were superb over in Ireland and I felt it was another very productive week over there,”  “This first friendly is all about getting back into our rhythm and building up our fitness.” “But you know when you go to somewhere like Carlisle it will be a very competitive friendly too.”

“I will be getting everyone bar Jonás (Gutiérrez) and the injured Danny Simpson involved,  and it will be a good test to see where we are at the moment. The priority is to get everyone through it unscathed and not to get any injuries, but of course there is an opportunity for people to impress as well.”

“At this stage you wouldn’t expect us to be at full pelt but we know there are going to be a lot of supporters travelling and it is a good game for us to get started.”

Newcastle will, give some playing time to young guns Haris Vuckic and Nile Ranger, and it’s then up to them as to how they take their chance.

With possibly so many central midfielders coming in during the pre-season, maybe Haris will be loaned out for a while, and we know Nile Ranger will move on loan to another club, to get some valuable first team experience.

Local lad 19 year-old Ryan Donaldson, who is currently with the England’s under-19 side, is another youngster who looks set to be loaned out, at least until January.

Chris continued:

“I do expect one or two of our young players to go out on loan,” “We’re still assessing that and perhaps if they do particularly well in pre-season that will affect our judgements. First and foremost we will be looking after ourselves when it comes to loans though.”

With so many young players at the club who need to b developed, Chris will need to get used to loan deals for his youngsters, but he seems to be going about the task this season – just like he did a year ago.

Professionally and organized, and we have to hope next season will give us at least a little success – a mid-table position would be fantastic for the Newcastle club – and then it’s pushing on form there.

Comments welcome.

    Agree use lower league clubs to gain our youngsters to improve them :)

    Hughton has said he expects Vuckic to play a bigger role this season for us, so I doubt he is going anywhere on loan.

    Ranger (Sadly :( ), Donaldson, Lua Lua, and one of Krul/Forster will be loaned out, but I highly doubt Vuckic will be.

  • 3 NUFC_Richyg01 // Jul 16, 2010 at 9:27 AM

    It may be that if Gosling comes in and is available round XMas time then Vuckic may be loaned out from January?

  • 7 davybtoon // Jul 16, 2010 at 9:42 AM

    When are ppl gonna get it in there head that vukic is a class act he should starting games he is that good, I expect xisco n best to a half upfront

  • 8 Doha Mag // Jul 16, 2010 at 9:42 AM

    It’s essential we loan out the youngsters to gain first team experience until they are ready for the Newcastle first team.

    Not yet sure if Kadar is ready for the first team but unless we have adequate cover he will need to stay on Tyneside and learn his trade…..

    Ranger, Lua lua, Airey, Donaldson, Forster (or Krull), etc all need to go out on loan at some stage this season.

  • 9 greekgeordie // Jul 16, 2010 at 9:43 AM

    Vuckic should stay and develope at SJP he is good enough to be placed on the bench and be used as required, the young lad has played for his country young sides and all he needs premier lrague experience.
    All other players such as Ranger Lua Lua Donaldson and Foster need to be farmed out as there is no chance of getting any games at the moment unless injuries decimate the team.

  • 10 davybtoon // Jul 16, 2010 at 9:45 AM

    Gosling is a done deal he is injured n there waiting to see how much compensation they mite have to pay if everton win an appeal, we hav apperntly bid 5million for anthony annan

  • 11 TheMags // Jul 16, 2010 at 9:47 AM

    so gosling will become a toon player and the annan deal i cant see tht one happening wen hughton want a stricker n cover at lb

  • 12 Tom // Jul 16, 2010 at 10:09 AM

    We desperately need a defensive/holding midfielder. Annan fits that bill nicely. I can’t see us pulling it off, but it would be a fantastic signing if we could.

  • 13 dave 1961 // Jul 16, 2010 at 10:47 AM

    I have only seen Vuckic on a few occasions but my first impression were he’s something special, and he reminded me of Zedine Zidane i think this lad has the ability to be one of the best in world football one day, only time will tell if he reaches his true potential. he really is that good. and I don’t care if I am ridiculed for saying it.

  • 14 Newutd // Jul 16, 2010 at 11:00 AM

    Tom

    We need a striker and cover for Enrique more than we need a defensive midfielder. Annan is not coming, and I am glad for that.

  • 15 NUFC_Richyg01 // Jul 16, 2010 at 12:39 PM

    Newutd @ 14

    Hopefully Van Aanholt can provide that cover!!!

  • 16 Newutd // Jul 16, 2010 at 12:54 PM

    Agree Richy. The ideal cover for sure.

  • 17 Ericles // Jul 16, 2010 at 3:47 PM

    I agree greekgeordie!

  • 18 geordie_al // Jul 16, 2010 at 4:43 PM

    i dont think we should send vuckic out on loan i think he needs to start getting introduced to the first team hes obviously talented enough, same goes with forster i got to watch him a lot last season and hes going to be a world class goalkeeper if hes impressed in pre season him aswell as krul will be pushing for a starting place future is looking bright

  • 19 baro // Jul 16, 2010 at 7:44 PM

    Dave 1961

    I totally agree with you on Haris Vuckic. He is something special. :)
