Youngster Wants To Play At Bigger Club Than Gateshead

News today that Newcastle’s Australian born midfielder Brad Inman has turned down a chance to play out on loan at Gateshead.

Brad Inman – refused to go on loan at Gateshead

That’s always a dangerous move for a young player to make, but it seems that Brad wants to go out on loan – but he thinks he can play at a higher level than the Conference in English football.

Alan Pardew is keen to get the lad out on loan to get some first team games, and the Scottish youth player  (his mother is Scottish) has been in fine form for the Newcastle U21 side this season, following a long injury absence last season.

Brad was nicknamed ‘Kaka’ when he first arrived on Tyneside, because of his similarity to the Brazilian International, whose star seems to now be on the wane at Real Madrid.

Inman’s huge potential was recognised  when he won the Wor Jackie award in 2010, given to the best Newcastle U18 player.

20 year-old Inman now has a two year contract which runs out in the summer of 2014, so he will need to make his mark at Newcastle soon, if he wants to stay on Tyneside, and other players the same age – like Sammy Ameobi  James Tavernier and Shane Ferguson are coming through big time on Tyneside.

It turns out that a loan move to Gateshead had been set up for the lad earlier this month, but Brad didn’t want to join the local club, and now has until November 25th to finalize a loan move somewhere else.

It’s a surprise that Brad didn’t take the opportunity to show what he can do at Gateshead, where youngsters like James Tavernier and Paul Dummett have played recently, and become better players because of the experience.

    Realistically though how many of these youngsters will be world class.

    Watching the reserves for a few seasons I can say that the only one who perhaps be a full international for a quality nation in a few seasons is Adam Campbell.

    Vuckic might come good but other than that we have youngsters who will be PL quality but will never take us to the top end.

    I think good on Brad Inman

    I’d rather play against quality youngsters on good pitches than play against old blokes who will look to kick the shit out off you on some back field.

    He will learn more in the u21’s than in the confrence.

    He should wait for leauge 1 or spl

    well maybe in FA cup against lesser teams, we could see more youngsters in action.
    I reeeeaaally want to see how good they are, so far many people say AC (Campbell) is amazing talent, so far I only saw him playing to get stats “the youngest player in Europa” for only 13 minutes.

    He needs to go out to a League 2 side. Where does Carlisle or Hartlepool play these days?

    Abeid needs to go out on loan to a champ side as well.

    Deadpool – good points

    Our youngsters should be more involved by now if they are going to be top stars.

    All the top players break through at 17/18 it at least get loan moves withing the prem league at that age.

    At 20 Gateshead isn’t going to help him much. He should be ahead of that.
