24 Year-Old Is The 19th Player To Leave Magpies This Summer


The news has come through that Haris Vuckic will go on loan to Bradford City initially though early January and then a decision will be made on him by Rafa Benitez at that time about whether he completes the season at Bradford.

Haris is in the final year of his contract at Newcastle and after having such a bright future when he joined the club as a 16 year-old in January, 2009, the Slovenian International has failed to make it on Tyneside.

It’s good he will get some first team games in Yorkshire this season.

Haris Vuckic – on loan to Bradford City

Haris is the 19th player to leave the club permanently or on loan this summer in Rafa Benitez’ first transfer window.

This is what Newcastle put out a short time ago.

Haris Vuckic has joined Bradford City on loan until January.

The 24-year-old Slovenian, who joined Newcastle in 2009, helped Wigan win the League One title last season and will now hope to be involved in another promotion from the same division with the Bantams.

Their manager is Stuart McCall, who was in charge at Rangers when Vuckic had a successful loan spell at Ibrox in 2015.

As well as the Gers and Wigan, Vuckic has also spent time on loan with Rotherham and Cardiff. He’s made a total of 18 appearances for Newcastle, scoring one goal, but hasn’t played a senior
competitive game for the Magpies since a 1-0 FA Cup third round defeat at Leicester in January 2015.

However, he scored twice for United’s U-23s in their opening Premier League 2 Division Two match of the season against Norwich.

Here’s the current transfer table.
