Chris Hughton is ready to send Kazenga LuaLua away on loan for the season, to give the 19 year-old promising young player first team action.
Kazenga LuaLua – out on loan next season
Kazenga made a brief appearance for Newcastle on Saturday against PSV, and Chris Hughton thinks he needs first team action to further develop his football skills.
Ther youngster played at Brighton for a while earlier this year, and the south coast club are said to be very keen to take the lad on a season-long loan deal.
Hughton told the Evening Chronicle yesterday:
“He is a young, promising player, but we have to look after our own players.”
“When we are happy with what we’ve got and know we can afford to let a couple of players to go out, we will let it be known.”
“It’s important for them to play, though. It’s important now, but we also have to have an eye on the future.”
If Newcastle bring in Tom Cleverley then we think that Kazenga will be allowed to go out on loan next season.
And some Newcastle fans will say why bring in Tom, but just play Kazenga instead next season.
We think the answer is that the players’ developments are at different stages and Tom is on the verge of the Manchester United team and will give more to Newcastle than Kazenga can – at this stage of his career.
But hopefully after a year away – Kazenga will be all ready to fight for his first tema place next summer.
