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

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.
