Tavernier’s Loan Spell At Gateshead Ends – Recalled By Magpies

News today that Newcastle have recalled defender James Tavernier from his loan spell at Gateshead.

James Tavernier – loan spell at Gateshead comes to an abrupt end

With the injuries and suspensions Newcastle have suffered lately it seems sensible to recall a youngster who has already shown he can play well for the Newcastle first team.

The move has been forced by James Perch picking up a red card in the Reserve game against Manchester United earlier in the week, and now being suspended for three games, and of course James can offer cover at right back, and can also play at center-back at a stretch.

It’s a bit of pity for James, who was playing well for Gateshead and getting valuable first team experience there, and he played 18 times at Gateshead in total, and so far has two appearances for the Newcastle first team.

The Gateshead manager Ian Bogie now has until 5:00pm tomorrow to bring in replacement for James on loan.

James Tavernier will now be part of the Newcastle first team for their final 8 games of the season, and like other 19 years olds at the club, Shane Ferguson and Michael Richardson, seems one of the brightest youngsters on Tyneside at the moment.

The Bradford-born player joined Leeds United as a 9 year old before being picked up by Newcastle back in 2008, and he’s been impressive since then for both the U-18 Youth side and the Newcastle Reserve side.

    get them all back – the only way to bring them on is to play one or two in every game at the end of the season (once we are safe) – thats the way its allways been done

    and £2m for foster? no chance!

    James Perch is not suspended, reserves cards only count for reserves games! JT looks like a good prospect though so if he can be involved then will do him good no doubt! Use him once we’re safe let him show what he can do

    I already rate this kid very close to danny simpson, i feel he will challenge him for the right back spot next season, loads of potential, quick has a good eye for a pass, good defender already, puts a decent cross in also. danny is ok but has not got anything that exites bit one dimentional and i feel he has reached his potential, were as this lad can really push on and move forward and past him.
