As we understand it, the fourth Thursday in November (November 28th this year) is the last day of the emergency transfer window, so if some of our top youngsters are to be sent out on loan to get first team football, that’s the deadline day.
Adam Campbell – had good game last night for U21 side
There are players at Newcastle who can benefit from a loan spell, as Paul Dummett did so noticeably last season, and now has a sic year contract to show for it.
Players like Haris Vuckic, Curtis Good, Adam Campbell and Gael Bigirimana, who will not get many first team opportunities at Newcastle this season, can benefit greatly from loan moves.
Adam Campbell was back to his best in last night’s 6-2 U21 defeat against Aston Villa, when Villa scored three goals in the last few minutes, but the game was much closer than that score suggests, and 16 year-old Adam Armstrong scored (yet) again, with Vuckic getting the other goal.

Alan Pardew had talked about getting the youngsters out on loan a few weeks back, but said there had not been many inquiries about the players, but they are not going to progress quickly by playing only in the U21 games, and maybe even making the first team bench now and again.
These players need first team regular football, so we are hoping to see some loan moves announced shortly.
