Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has decided to allow some of Newcastle’s top youngsters to go out on loan to get first team experience.
Shane Ferguson – to go out on loan
And the three who will be allowed to leave are three of the top young players on Tyneside in Shane Ferguson, Mehdi Abeid and Haris Vuckic.
We just have to hope that Newcastle will not suffer too many injuries to their first team squad during the end of the season, although we would expect Newcastle to be able to recall the players if that happens.
And it seems that Alan is ready to let them go out before November is through, and we’re sure there will be a number of clubs interested in taking these three players, with Shane being a left sided full back, midfielder or winger, and the other two being top central midfielders.
It turns out that clubs are allowed to loan out players until November 24th and it’s not surprising that Alan is thinking about how to give some of his top youngsters a game, so they can continue their development.
Haris Vuckic is 19 and has already played for the Slovenian U21 side, and Mehdi Abeid, also 19, recently decided he wanted to play for Algeria at International level, rather than France, the place of his birth, and his aim is to play for them in next year’s Olympic Games.
And Shane Ferguson is already a Northern Ireland International at 20, although there’s some debate about whether the Derry-born player will switch to play for Ireland.
It remains to be seen which clubs the three will go out on loan too, and then how long Alan will allow them to stay out on loan.
But this is exactly waht’s needed to bring the top youngsters through at the Tyneside club.
