We have often talked about the inability of Newcastle to bring though our youngsters to become first team players on Tyneside, and Newcastle are about to unload some of them initially on loan, when the Football League transfer window opens next week.
Sammy Ameobi – time is up at Newcastle?
And it looks like each one of the players will also be available for a permanent move at the end of their loan periods, with the first opportunity to permanently sign for another club being in January.
It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that Shane Ferguson, Haris Vuckic and Sammy Ameobi are set to leave the club, and for whatever reason these once promising youngsters just haven’t made it at Newcastle .
It was a surprise to us that Newcastle are now willing to let Gael Bigirimana leave the club, after only two years on board.
But the news is Gael will also be sent out on loan initially, as will Remie Streete – the 19 year-old South Shields center-back – whom Newcastle had great hopes for only a short two years go.
And it looks like Adam Campbell’s time may be up on Tyneside, and only a year ago, we were hoping that the 19 year-old could come through for us last season.
In his loan spell at St. Mirren earlier this year Adam did not play well, and he is currently on loan at Fleetwood Town, where he has played four games (no goals) in his short-term loan spell.
One of Newcastle’s major strategies for producing players is through the Youth system, but so far over these last seven years, it has been something of a failure – and these six players now available for transfer and/or loan spells proves that.
To end this on a bright note, we do have two youngsters who (hopefully) appear to be the real deal in Rolando Aarons and Adam Armstrong.
And the six players mentioned above should look on the bright side, and the plight of Mehdi Abeid a year ago.
Mehdi’s Newcastle career also seemed to be over, but he stuck in at Panathinaikos last season and played great in Greece, and the 22 year-old is now firmly in the Newcastle first team squad and playing well.
