Newcastle Top Youngster To Go On Loan Next Month

9:59 am, Tuesday, December 10th, 2013 by Ed Harrison · 11 Comments

A number of Newcastle youngsters need to go out on loan and play first team games, in order that they can improve quickly, and then they can come back as better players and challenge for a first team spot at Newcastle. That seems a good scenario to get Newcastle youngsters developing quickly.

Adam Campbell – on loan in January

The Newcastle Journal is reporting today that St Mirren are getting close to a deal to take 18 year-old local striker Adam Campbell on loan in January.

Paul Dummett and Conor Newton both went on loan last season to the Scottish Premier League club, and both did great, and that earned Paul a six-year deal at his local club.

And Conor Newton is back north of the border on loan at St. Mirren again this season.

Spencer Downey is an agent working on the move for Campbell, and he had this to say in the Journal today:

“We’re hoping to have that one tied up for January 1 and get Adam up there for the match with Kilmarnock the day after,”   “Newcastle value what St Mirren have done for Paul and Conor,  and believe sending Adam up there would be good for him.”

A loan spell will do Adam a lot of good, and we’d also like to see local lads Remie Streete and maybe even Adam Armstrong also sent out on loan next month.

The Newcastle youngsters need to get first team experience somewhere else, because they will not get first team experience at Newcastle at the moment, with the competition for places being so intense.

Comments welcome.

    Strange season so far! Great performances away to spurs and man utd yet poor performances at home to Hull and West Ham! I think we are in need of a proper leader on the pitch to keep the team focused against lesser teams! A john Terry/tony adams type of player!
    On pardew, he’s greatly improved, decisions are better, i think its taken him a year to learn how to use the players Carr signs! I also think hes got the right mental strength to be a top manager, hes not afraid to stand by his decisions such as unpopular team selections such as playing iron mike or shola! Makes me wonder if he previously had pressure from llambias to play the highest earning players last season which to my knowledge are Colo, Jonas and Tiote (remy aside now obviously)

    The lad should be playing competitive footie.

    What’s Sammy doing too, sitting around Benton?

    Pardew usually shoots down the tunnel after a loss.

    Like I said fair-weather manager.

    would love to see cambell in the scots prem to see if he can score goals when needed (if theres anywhere to score goals its scotland) and try build that confidence.

    Saylor could do with going out on loan for a month or so and keep Dummett as back up.

    On Campbell, ive watched the reserves a few times and i feel for the lad, hes got a great expectation on him and hes never going to fulfil it! I can see him having a decent career in lower leagues and getting a move to a celtic or rangers at some point and scoring in scotland but whenever ive seen the ressies Vuckic was the the standout! An example of how poor a standard it is would be that i saw obertan drop in there for a game and absolutely piss all over it taking on 3 players a time when he got the ball! He looked like bleedin maradonna!

    Anyway pleased we won after all those years.
    Love Sian Massey, just for being as good as she is.
    Cheers pet!

    Later lads.

    This administration is the first at NUFC to take loaning out seriously.

  • 10 Hatem's better than Messi // Dec 10, 2013 at 10:20 AM

    Saylor won’t be going anywhere on loan. Are you mad?
    We only have 4 CB’s.

    Hatem’s better than Messi @8 – Good point that was an excellent decision she made – in fact I can’t remember any major decisions she has got wrong.
    Off topic who would have thought it 2 Newcastle CB’s in Garth Crooks team of the week
