Pardew Allows Vuckic To Join Cardiff City On Loan


News today that 19 year-old Newcastle central midfielder Haris Vuckic will be joining Cardiff City on an initial one month loan deal tomorrow.

6’3″ Haris Vuckic in action against West Brom  earlier this season

Haris is one of Newcastle’s brightest young talents, and he joined the club in January of 2009, and has made 12 appearances so far for the Newcastle first team, and he’s played 5 times this season,  with a couple of starts in the Premier League.

But with Danny Guthrie and James Perch playing in central midfield in the absence of  the great Cheick Tiote, who has helped the Ivory Coast reach the finals of the African Cup of Nations, and French International Yohan Cabaye, who is suspended for three games for violent conduct, Haris needs playing time to develop his game.

The 19-year-old midfielder  is expected to sign the loan deal on Friday, and Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has finally allowed the Slovenian U21 International to get playing time away from Newcastle.

Haris looks to be a very good player in the making and the lad  impressed on the American tour, along with out other 19 year-old central midfielder Frenchman Mehdi Abeid, but he needs games to progress, and we think it’s good that Alan Pardew has  let him go out on loan.

Hopefully he can help Cardiff City in their quest to join Swansea next season in the Premier League.

Vuckic’ Premier League debut came at the end of August against Fulham at St. James’ Park,  and he started the games against  West Bromwich Albion at home and Liverpool at Anfield in December.

Haris is very well thought of at Newcastle, and he has caught the eye of some big clubs in Europe, and we wish him the very best at Cardiff City, and it will be interesting to see how he performs in the Championship.

    I’m assuming Gossling is rated over him to cover Guthrie and Perch?

    Thats a good move by Pardew sending the kid to Cardiff where he can get used to the hustle and bustle of football and next season he’ll be better for it.

    This is only a good thing.

    He is clearly in need of playing some consistent football in a competetion that actually means something in front of decent crowds. There will also be the pressure of keeping a play-off place.

    I upgrade/downgrade players on FIFA manually, just so they get it right, got Ba on 84, so my estimation was pretty good ( don’t have internet connection for my xbox, so manager mode for me 🙁 )

    Good luck Harris, more than good enough to get some games under your belt, good move this, he will come back match fit and hungry for more, just in time for the final push! High hopes for this kid!

    Apologies to all those that had to endure my previous cut and paste gaff. I had merely meant to emphasise how my praise for Pardew did not entail praise for Ashley, as Joppadoo had trouble in differentiating between the two.

    In regards to the spurs game I envisage Pardew playing Demba in a more withdrawn role which can help the midfield whilst also breaking forward to assist Cisse when possible, similar to the formation we played at villa away this season.

    Would be good for him.

    Hes got all the raw attributes; strong, determined. great vision and a cracking shot.

    But when hes played sometimes hes been a little bit flustered by the pace and his touch sometimes gets away from him in a crowded midfield, so abit of time at Championship level should be great experience for him.

    fantastic news! and about time!

    if pardew isn’t going to be playing players like fergie, abeid and vuckic, they need to be sent on loan sooner rather than later

    the standard of the reserve league is pretty poor and they’re all three at vital points in their careers where competitive games can make the difference

    toonfresh, markmac

    i’d say Vuckic is (imo rightly so) rated higher than gosling. Vuckic was the one who came in and played games while gosling didn’t. he looks a liability on the field to me

    Definitely agree that Fergie needs to get a stretch at a club on loan, the lad is a top young player, seemed like he was going to come into his own, pre-season there was a lot of talk that he was going to take over the LB mantle from Enrique and now he has seemed to have gone off AP’s radar.

    agree….supposedly Doncaster wanted Gosling on loan earlier this season but he didn’t want to go…..IF TRUE, not the best attitude to have

    I think with Gosling, Pardews decision to play Perch, who was very good at Villa, ahead of him tells us all we need to know.

    Hes a decent hard working player Gosling but hasnt got that little bit extra to be a long-term player I dont think.

    Wouldn’t jump to that conclusion that quickly, it could suggest that he is more willing to stay at the club and try and prove himself at our club rather than in the fizzy pop.

    Everytime Fergie starts he always seems to get cramp and some injury after about 70 mins. Saw an interview with him and he even admitted that Pardew wants him to beef up, so i think its just a matter of time waiting for him to fill out.

    ironic thing with Gosling is if he hadn’t left, he’d probably (surely) be getting alot more match time at Everton

    ….not to mention the less than respectable way he went about leaving the club…

    I still cant say I’ve seen anything to suggest Vuckic is anywhere near ready for the first team, he was so off the pace against Liverpool recently so might as well send him for the season and probably be on loan somewhere for next season also, espec if we reinforce the squad in the summer.

    I was absolutely delighted in the summer of 2010 when I heard that we had nabbed Gosling off the Toffees for nowt and was so excited to seeing him in our side but he hasn’t really shown too much of the potential that he showed at Everton, mind you he is still a young lad with bags of time to develop so who knows he could blossom yet.

    but there’s got to be a sense of reality in some of these kids. He should’ve been cognizant enough to realize ‘at best i’m fourth choice, at worst, seventh’ and should’ve had the determination to prove both to himself and the manager that he can cut it….it wasn’t about flogging him off but building up experience. he’s had what, under ten starts in his entire career?

    but again, all conjecture as i’m not 100% he refused the loan, but they definitely tried for him

    Yeah I remember reading an article where he said he was on a steak diet over the summer to beef up over pre-season, well it’s February now and AP must still think he hasn’t beefed up enough! haha well it’s the same situation with Gosling I reckon, he’s still a young lad with loads of time to develop and with the renewed emphasis put on developing young talent Newcastle will definitely be a club that will do all they can to help these guys realise their potential so it’s looking encouraging

    @ Ruddy, to be fair to DG, that midfield pairing has been a tough nut to crack, and lets not forget that he has never been 100% fit yet from a career threatening injury. I’m sure he will come good.

    agree partly with your assessment. I think the second half (for the fifteen minutes he was on) he really came into his own and was the best player for those fifteen minutes. inexplicably he came off as he was growing into the game. I think if you play him in that position (the ‘number 10 role’) with two strikers in front of him instead of one, i think we’d see the best of him.

    he was pretty poor at WBA save those two or three wicked shots he had, but i think a CM role is too deep for him. he’s too slow for it and he looked a bit lost. he always plays that second striker role in the reserves

    Not doubting that they were after him at all Matty, I do remember hearing that rumour bandied about at the time, think there was a good deal of substance in it, could have been a case of AP not wanting to let him go what with Tiote away at the ACON so, as you rightly say, at this point it is all conjecture as to why it didn’t materialise. If another loan option arises for him I do hope he takes it because, while he might want to stay here and prove himself at the club, he clearly isn’t going to break into the midfield now, especially when Yo Cab and Tiote are back. I mean, if he can’t break into the midfield ahead of Perch (who was quite good at Villa I will admit) then he really isn’t in the running.

    i agree. i don’t think he has a shot in hell, honestly. the other DG is simply immense and it’s gonna be difficult enough for pardew to justify leaving him out of the team on this form

    i’ve said it since he started his run of games way back in october or whenever it was and it’s only been solidified; if we play two in the middle, i think guthrie’s form deserves a place over Cabaye. still wanna see a middle three of all of them though

    cant believe people are writing off Gosling FFS. hes a 21 year old kid, who has been out injured for about 18 months, which has set him back, AND halted his development. Its going to take him a whle to get back to the level he was, and then he can kick on and reach his potential

    don’t think anyone was writing him off. just saying he doesn’t have a realistic chance of taking over from any of our first choice CMs

    Nick I don’t think people here are writing him off, just commenting on how his development has stalled and he seems to be down the pecking order a bit at the minute. That is as a result, as you rightly pointed out, of the serious injury he suffered both before joining here and the subsequent break down he suffered after the Sunderland game last year. He is only 21 and will probably come good, if ever there is a club that will help the development of good young talent it is certainly NUFC!
    HWTL!

    Couldn be happier with vuckic going on loan to cardiff. Class player with a majestic left foot. Puttin myself up to get slated here but he has a left foot as good as van der vaart also same kind of player. Genuinely the real deal some experience and he could become a nailed on starter for us in the future. Delighted he has a good loan there. Will be a huge player for the toon. HWTL

    Have followed this blog for years now and just decided to sign up to comment. Haris Vuckic is a player I really like, have always admired him. Not seen much of him mind you, but still an amazing talent, should been a good move for the lad. Dont know about you guys, but i believe him and Abied are the future of our team, the new Tiote and Cabaye?

    We might be seeing a whole lot more of Vukic and Gosling next season, with Guthers and Cabaye. If Tiote goes this championship experience might do him a big favour. We’ll do well to hold onto Cabaye as weel I think, 1st season to bed in but some of his technique is marvellous, more time on the ball in more advance areas and he’d score considerably more goals.
