Nile Ranger May Go Out On Loan Next Season

Newcastle’s Nile Ranger, who completed his second season on Tyneside, could well be sent out on loan next season.

Nile Ranger – Newcastle’s so promising striker

Nile needs to get  the games to continue his vast improvement since he arrived at Newcastle a couple seasons ago, and he may not be able to do that next season with the first team on Tyneside.

Nile appeared 30 times for the Magpies last season, and the lad is still just 19 year-old and still has a lot of improvement in him.  Nile is a great header of the ball and is very fast, and he’s certainly an exciting player to watch.

But this year he didn’t get many games since Leon Best came into the squad and Chris Hughton, the savvy Newcastle manager has a few decisions to make regarding Newcastle’s younger up-and-coming players.

Some will be sent out on loan and we expect 22 year-old goalkeeper Fraser Forster to return for another season at Norwich City – now in the Championship, once Chis has taken a good look at him over the summer.

Chris has already said he is willing to give 17 year-old Slovenian U21 International Haris Vuckic his chance, and it could be he will keep Nile on Tyneside, if  the lad looks like he will be challenging strongly for a first team place.

An alternative is to send the London lad out on loan for the first half of the season only, as we did a couple of years ago with Andy Carroll at Preston North End.

These decisions become very important for the Newcastle club, as we look to develop our own stars these days.

Another local lad who may go out on loan to aid his football development next season is the impressive 19 year-old Ryan Donaldson, our England U19 midfielder/striker.

20 year-old Hungarian Tamas Kadar will stay on Tyneside, and we’re so high on this lad that we think he could well be starter by the time next season ends next year at this time.

We also heard that five of the youngsters will join the first team squad for next season and these are 17 year-old Haris Vuckic, 18 year-old Galway-born Irish defender Stephen Folan, 18 year-old Australian-born  Brad Inman, Swede starlet 18 year-old  Samuel Adjei and 18 year-old Amble-born striker Phil Airey.

There’s no doubt that Newcastle’s youth  policy is starting to make a difference and we have to hope that one or two of these lads come through big time next season, either playing at  Newcastle or playing for their loan clubs.

Howay The  Lads!!

    I think it is way too early to talk about sending lads out on loan. Training camp will determine who needs more playing elsewhere, who stays on the roster and who goes away entirely.
    For my part, I’d like to see NUFC get some lads into MLS for the summer-which may not be easy given their roster rules-to get some real games under their belts.

    This lad needs games, at the right time, with his own club. How about our reserves loan him to the first team at times?

    I hope so, along with Forster and Donaldson they need the games at a relative high level.

    Ranger in the CCC would be great to see, i believe he would thrive giving the right club.

    I would agree with letting Nile go out loan, and gaining further first team experience to aid his develpment, however, why is there a picture of Tessa Sanderson in the post?

    That picture says it all. Ranger is a complete nobheed. Send him on a year loan to Partick Thistle (if they will have him) and tell him that unless he gets his act together that’s the level he will be playing the rest of his career.

    By all means let him go on loan but please, not darn saaf where he’s sure to revert to his old ways.

    Bao, Partick Thistle sounds like a good idea or even Inverness Cally?

    Better still, what about Motherwell as part of a loan deal to bring in Mark Reynolds?

    I wud have thought that Swansea City wud be a good choice to send Nile on loan to. We all know that the Swans struggled for goals last term and maybe that’s what they’re probably after a goalscorer. Do any of you guys think that sending Nile to the Swans is a good idea?

    @ Wud ‘Di’ for @11. I think sending him to Swansea would be a bad plan. Couple of pints of Brains SA and he would revert to his old ways.
