The BBC are reporting that Newcastle have recalled 19 year-old midfielder Haris Vuckic from his loan at Cardiff City.
Haris Vuckic – recalled by Newcastle
His initial month’s loan deal was up last Saturday, and there was news that the loan would be extended to the end of the season, but it looks like that’s not going to happen now.
Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay is still hopeful Vuckic could return on loan and be at Cardiff through the end of the season.
But the Cardiff manager has confirmed today that Haris has returned to Newcastle after a one-month loan spell.
Speaking to the BBC manager this is what Malky Mackey said,
“He’s going to be involved in their game against Arsenal and then it will be re-assessed.” “It’s something we definitely want to happen. It’s something I know Haris wants to happen.”
“And I also know Alan Pardew, Newcastle manager wants it to happen as well.” “It will just be dependent on the health of his squad in the next few days.”
It looks like Alan is still to make a decision ion whether to recall the 19 year-old, who looked good when he came on in the last 15 minutes of the game at Bristol City, when it was 1-1, and Haris helped Cardiff City get a vital win.
It might just be me, but this lad looks complete class when he is on the ball.
The concern at Newcastle of course is that striker Peter Lovenkrands is out for the rest of the season, and Newcastle may decide they need Haris back to bolster the squad, and of course the Slovenian International has a good eye for goal.
It will be interesting to see if Haris is on the bench at the Emirates Stadium tonight, and we’d be a little surprised if he goes back to Cardiff – we need him on Tyneside for our run-in to the season.
