Nile Ranger is staying at Newcastle this season it seems, and that says just how much Newcastle manager Chris Hughton rates the 19 year-old Londoner.
Nile Ranger – coming through well on Tyneside
Nile should be able to get in a few substitute appearances for the rest of the season, as the youngster looks to make his mark on Tyneside.
Chris talked about Ranger today:
“He’s a young lad, and is still developing. There are still areas of his game he needs to improve,”
“Fortunately, he’s doing it at the top end, which is the Premier League. There are areas he needs to improve, but he’s working hard at it and getting there quickly.”
“If I look at our strikers, they are all different.” “Andy and Shola are similar in some ways, and Nile’s got a little bit more power and pace.”
Another lad coming through well at Newcastle is our new Hungarian International – 20 year-old Tamas Kadar.
Tamas Kadar – coming through nicely
The young defender will probably be on the bench tomorrow afternoon, as we expect Steven Taylor and Sol Campbell to get the starts for Newcastle against Chelsea.
“Tamas is another option for us. He’ll be in the squad,”“He’s a good young player – he made his debut at left-back for the Hungarian national side a few weeks back so he’s a good player.”
“Those are the options I’ve got – James Perch can also play at center-back if needed as well, of course.”
And of course another exciting player at Newcastle is 6’2″ Slovenian Haris Vuckic who has also caught the eye when he’s played in the Newcastle first team this season.
So it would appear that Newcastle’s Youth strategy is in full swing on Tyneside at the moment.
