These Young Magpies Expected To Go On Loan This Season

It looks like Alan Pardew will be sending a number of Newcastle’s young players out on loan this season, and Northern Ireland International Shane Ferguson has already joined Birmingham on loan for the full season, so we’ll be following his progress this season in the Championship.

James Tavernier – playing against Amitros last season in Europa League

And there is also news today that James Tavernier will join Shrewsbury Town on loan, but it’s only initially for a month, but could well be extended.

James did well when he went out on loan to Gateshead in January two years ago when he played 18 times and got rave reviews, and since then he’s been at Carlisle (17 appearances), Sheffield Wednesday (8 appearances) and Milton Keynes Dons (8 appearances), but last season stayed on Tyneside.

James made 8 appearances for Newcastle last season, but was one of the youngsters who disappointed in what turned out to be a relegation-fighting season for Newcastle. 🙁

James signed a three year deal last July, but in truth he had a disappointing time of it last season, and the Bradford-born 21 year-old will hope he can get first team games this season, starting at Shrewsbury.

Other lads likely to go out on loan include Paul Dummett or Massadio Haidara, Adam Campbell, Jak Alnwick, Michael Richardson, Conor Newton and Curtis Good.

21 year-old Australian Brad Inman has not taken up the one year extension that was offered by Newcastle,  and he is now a free agent, with Crewe Alexandra said to be interested in signing him full time .

Brad played 26 times for Crewe earlier this year on loan and scored 8 goals for the Railwaymen.

Haris Vuckic could also be loaned out,  depending on how he does in pre-season, and if the Slovenian does well he will be in Newcastle’s first team squad for next season, which is what we expect.

Comments welcome.

    Prodigy, the coaching should be drilled into them to focus on passing and moving. A lot of the time the movement isn’t there so they have no other option, with a player closing them down, to knock a longer ball.

    Nothing wrong with spreading play and doing it quickly, as long as we have overlapping players and great awareness off the ball. I believe our technical players can do this but they are instructed to play a different way. A way in which is limiting their productivity greatly.

    Not trying to start an argument or even worse a long drawn out debate but whats your reason for the 5th place finish? And if the team for the most part stay fit where would you see us finish under pardew?

    Also were you aware that last season, we only had our strongest defence out twice and were defeated? That was chelsea and Tottenham.

    I should explain that includes krul and its my personal choice of strongest defence. Krul, santon, colo, Taylor and Simpson until January, then krul, santon, colo, mbiwa/Taylor and debuchy.

    @NUFC_Stats: All in all, NUFC converted just 50% of their clear cut chances created in the Premier League last season – 22/44 #nufc @EPLIndex

    @NUFC_Stats: Other PL 12/13 clear cut conversion rates:

    SAFC – 19/30
    MUFC – 52/66
    AFC – 36/49
    CFC – 31/45
    EFC – 27/66
    AVFC – 24/33
    QPR – 15/32

    This shows the desperate need for more attackers as ours simply aren’t up to it

    Truth be told league one is really about tav’s level
    Can’t believe there used to be calls for him to replace Simmo!

    I read somewhere that Streete was likely to go on loan as well. I’d imagine that most of the loans will be up until January to allow us to reassess then, and hopefully there will be recall clauses in Good’s and whichever left back goes deals.

    Agreed, Tav is done for at this club now, I reckon they regret giving him a 3 year deal now.

    Shame on Inman, but probably the best move for him. I reckon he will manage to work his way back up the leagues.

    Getting back to Ed’s lead in,I think this loaning out is generally overdone and overrated – by lots of clubs, not just us.Playing time, experience and fitness is one thing and sending a 17 or 18 yr old out to learn the ropes is ok but what is the point of established players like Vukic,haidara and Ferguson going.They are more likely to pick up bad habits at a lower level and after being on the sidelines for 2,3 or 4 years will never feel part of the club or premiership.They are either part of the plans and the squad or not.
    Its not as if we have a load of top quality players ahead of them – and with our injury record – enough said

    I think alot of JK new role is more for scouting to bring lad’s in for the future, MA wants more resale value out of his squad.
    At this moment first team should be priority, but the thought of parting with a few mil is a very sore point.

    Another diamond quote from pards… “Blackpool are two weeks away from the start of their season.
    They’re 10 days ahead of us. I think that will show. It’ll be a good test for us” obviously he didnt listen to paul inces interview the other day, when he said blackpool where well behind in preperation for the new season…

    Toon army down south.

    Not necessarily more attackers, though I do agree with that. But we don’t create enough chances in general.

    I’m getting tired of the Gomes thing. He had a good season last year and has a fairly decent record but for the money being touted I’d l
    Ok elsewhere. Remy would be my first choice out of the 3 mentioned. Bent would be a safer bet too. And he has just as good a scoring record as Gomes and remy except its in the prem already.

    I think we missed a trick on Gary hooper. For the money involved. He is a very versatile striker and very good at supporting a big guy up from so could have worked well with cisse.

    There is a hell of alot more to add into the mix than just coaching.

    No one knows what is done on the training field on this blog.

    There is certain other factors to take into consideration, such as confidence, player availability, fitness, morale. These all affect the performance on the park.

    We were lacking in all of these departments vastly last season due to injuries, player recovery times getting back after long lay offs, poor quality off the bench, poor squad depth, losing strikers, players out of position.

    Pardew admitted plenty of times when he got tactics wrong in games. For me, that’s all you can ask of him.

    I’v personally got alot more to complain about upstairs than the coaching which I havn’t got a clue what they do to start with. Im not going to try guessing it or complain.

    Watching managers being hung out to dry season after season is more my cup of tea and I keep seeing it every window which is annoying me something rotten.

    I just want to see a plan and everything done which would give us our best shot. Im still yet to see that with this regime and it’s painful as it’s been 5-6 years now and still we don’t have a capable squad of even competeing in Europe if we are playing Premier games aswell.

    Just looking at Swansea right now and then looking at what our regime did last summer is frightening to say the least. It’s very wrong to me.

    At the end of the day, it’s called ambition, and we lack it greatly.

    Bedtime for me mate. Catch ya soon.

    Is JFK actually aware that he has a job and if so, does he know what the job entails?

    Surely he can’t be as daft as to think that Mike Ashley hired him to warm the office chairs and do f@ck all…

    Fergie and Tav, and the rest of the players mentioned with the exception of Vuckic, who won’t be loaned out, and Haidara, who I reckon will stay with Dummett going out, are miles away from playing first team. They will learn so much more and develop more by actually playing competitive football than playing in the development/Under 21/reserve league.

    I’m also not sure how you can classify either Vuckic or Ferguson as “established”.

    Maybe we don’t create enough, but those stats were clear cut chance conversions

    Lilongwe@16 – fair point ,established is perhaps the wrong word – players who have been around a long time and are apparently part of plans – my concern with the loan system is that it can be overdone and players like this never get the chance to become established.It must start to affect a young players morale if they are repeatedly loaned out
