There was good news yesterday that 19-year-old Danish striker Elias Sorensen signed a three-and-a-half year deal yesterday that keeps him at the club until June 2022.
Elias has been in great goalscoring form this season with 15 goals in 16 games for the Newcastle reserve side.
U23 coach Ben Dawson has told the Dane that he will have to be patient for a chance in the Newcastle first team – who are once again in a relegation scrap for yet another season.
Elias Sorensen – promising young striker
This is what Ben has said as reported in the Chronicle:
“When you are scrapping at the bottom of the league is not the best time to play youngsters.”
“There has been loads of debate about whether to play Elias Sorensen or not.”
“Should he get an opportunity?”
“Well it’s the wrong time, he is still a young age.”
“There are certain situations that lend themselves to better opportunities.”
The talented youngster could have an exciting future ahead of him at Newcastle.
And we certainly need strikers like Elias who can put the ball into the back of the net.
We wish the teenager every success at Newcastle.
