Hungarian international defender Tamas Kadar joined Newcastle in January of 2008, when he was just 17, on a four year deal.
Tamas Kadar – wants a loan move
And Tamas made more than a decent start to his Newcastle career, and at the end of the first two and a half seasons on Tyneside he had made 16 appearances for the Newcastle first team and looked a very promising young player.
But since the summer of 2010, he’s made just two more appearances and has been out injured a lot.
There was news earlier in the season that Tamas was fighting for his career on Tyneside, with the likelihood that he would be let go next June, and that came as a surprise to some of us.
Newcastle Reserves have lost their unbeaten streak to the season, losing at Sunderland last week, and losing 4-0 at home to Everton yesterday at Whitley Park.
Tamas played in that game, and he had this to say yesterday about his Newcastle career:
“My dream is still to play for Newcastle. When we were in the Championship, I got the feeling of what it’s like to play for Newcastle.”
“It was two years ago, and I would like to experience that again and play for the Newcastle fans.” “I know I need to work hard. Hopefully, I can stay here and show the fans what I can do.”
“If I go on loan in January, that will be great.” “At my age, I need regular games. If I can get games on loan, I’ll take that.”
“Huddersfield was a good move – it’s a great club, but I felt like I wasn’t 100 per cent. That’s maybe why I got the injury.
“Now I feel like I’m 100 per cent. I’m playing every week, and it’s been two months since the last injury.”
Kadar won his second full cap for Hungary in their 5-0 win over Liechtenstein recently, and he also had some games for the Hungarian U21 side in their Euro 2013 qualifying.
Tamas talked about his International appearances:
“After the game I went with the Under-21s because that was an important qualification game against Italy, and the full national team had a friendly.
“It’s going to be hard work – I know that – but hopefully I can train with the first team.”
Looking at Tamas Facebook page it looks like he wants to get a loan move, and he says that above too, so we’ll see if he can get one arranged in January.
We’ll run a poll asking if you think Tamas can save his career at Newcastle, and get a contract extension before he becomes a free agent next summer.
