20 year-old Remie Streete has been recalled from his loan spell at Port Vale because of Newcastle’s injury problems with Fab Coloccini and Steven Taylor, but Remie has hinted that he may be able to return to the Valiants soon.

In the Stoke Sentinel a source close to Streete said the South Shields born player was enjoying his spell with Port Vale, and that he is keen to return to the club if Newcastle’s injuries clear up.
We should hear more about Newcastle’s injury situation in the next day or two, and in particular the prognosis on Newcastle’s Argentine International center-back Fab Coloccini..
Remie played full games for Port Vale in the 2-1 win at Colchester and the 3-4 FA Cup defeat to MK Dons, and that was after he had come on at half time to make his debut in the 3-0 home win over Leyton Orient.
But a loan deal would need to be negotiated and finalized before a week on Thursday (27th November) when the window for signing players on loan slams shut.
Streete has recently tweeted his support for the Valiants:
“Great win for @OfficialPVFC against Rochdale on Sat. Hope the lads keep up the good work, may be back soon.”
Vale boss Rob Page is disappointed he has lost Remie Streete – at least for the time bring – but he has said he fully understands Alan Pardew’s position at Newcastle:
“I would do exactly the same. As frustrated as I am, and I would love Remie to stay, I understand Alan Pardew has a job to do as well.”
“We are borrowing his player and helping develop him. He has been outstanding for us, so I can see why he has called him back.”
Port Vale are currently in 12th place in League One with 22 points from 17 games, and just 5 points out of a play-off position.
It would be good for Remie to spend even the rest of the season on loan at Port Vale – if that works out for both parties, and we’ve seen players like Mehdi Abeid and Paul Dummett improve immensely, when they have gone out on loan and played first team games consistently.
It’s good for their development and good for their confidence too, and Remie has always been highly rated at Newcastle – and maybe this season is when he can show what he can do out on loan at the Valiants.
Sounds good to us.
