19-year-old Elias Sorensen was again left out of the Blackpool squad for last night’s home draw against Doncaster Rovers.
And that was enough for Newcastle and the Magpies have recalled the Danish teenager and he will be available to play for the Newcastle U23 team for the rest of the season.
He has scored already scored 19 goals for the team so far this season.
Sorensen played only 32 minutes for Blackpool since January after several lower-level league clubs had been interested in taking him on loan in January.
Elias Sorensen – will now play for the U23 team
Blackpool manager Terry McPhillips has left him out of the previous seven squads – so we are not sure why he wanted to bring the teenager in on loan in the first place.
A statement from Blackpool read:
“The club would like to wish Elias all the very best for the future.”
The striker has just been called up by Denmark’s U20s for their friendly game against Romania in Spain on March 25.
And both Callum Roberts and Jamie Sterry have also been brought back to Newcastle after they have not been getting enough playing time during their loan spells since January.
Roberts has been at Colchester United and Sterry at Crewe Alexandra.
Sterry was not in the squad last night in Crewe Alexandra’s 0-0 draw against Cambridge,
Roberts has not been given much playing time and he made only three sub appearances for Colchester.
It’s timely that Newcastle will invest in the Academy and U23 setup for next season.
And the club will hire a loan manager whose job is to send young players out on loan to get them first team playing time.
These three loan deals have been a waste of time for Newcastle and the youngsters this year.
