Elias Sorensen Replaces Joselu For China Trip



The Chronicle have a report that Newcastle have confirmed that Joselu has not made the trip to China with young Elias Sorensen traveling in his place.

This could mean that Joselu’s long-anticipated transfer to Alaves in imminent. It is also excellent news that Elias Sorensen has made the trip in Joselu’s stead.

Yesterday, we had reported of our disappointment that Elias was not included in the squad for the Premier League Asia Trophy as we thought it would have been a good trip for him to make for his confidence and development.

It turns out that he, in fact, did make the trip as Joselu has been left behind presumably due to the pending move to Alaves.

Elias Sorensen– getting a chance with first team

This is what Mark Douglas has written about the change of strikers in the preseason squad:

Joselu’s Newcastle United future appeared to be in further doubt as the club confirmed he has been replaced in the travelling party for the Asia Trophy by youngster Elias Sorensen.

The Spaniard was named in the initial squad to travel to China for the Premier League’s pre-season tournament but with Alaves set to firm up their interest in the striker, it has now been confirmed that he has been left at home with an exit looming.

The 29-year-old has been in talks with the La Liga side all summer and Newcastle have deemed him surplus to requirements.

While the former Stoke striker was only a bit part player last season and the club need to upgrade, his possible departure would leave United with just Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto as recognised strikers and just 25 days left of the transfer window to address that.

It’s very hard to get excited about another report of Joselu’s departure as this is about the twelfth time it has been intimated that he is close to joining Alaves.

He does need to leave though for his benefit as well as the club’s. Newcastle now need to press forward and find replacements for all of the forwards who have left or are on there way out.

That is going to be a massive task for Lee Charnley and Steve Nickson to replace the likes of Salomon Rondon and Ayoze Perez with equal quality at a time when the club is clouded with negativity.

Even though there appears to be money to spend, the bigger obstacle will be attracting ambitious and talented players to a club that has made it loud and clear that seventeenth place will do just fine.

We are very pleased, though, to hear that Sorensen will get a chance with the first team this summer. We feel that he should have been included from the start but it’s better late than never.

    I can’t believe the media coverage of this episode. I’m starting to think were all mad and Ashley mustn’t be running the club in the unbelievably unscrupulous way we think he is. Either that or that fat f**ker has got friends and goons everywhere in the media who are towing his line for him. It would send you to despair

    Munster,

    The only way the likes of tsunki, lesh and rotunda can respond to posts from the likes of me and you is to twist what we say, or just purely invent, to suit their own bigoted agendas.

    They can’t debate.

    THEY are the propagandists, not us.

    Bills is entitled to his opinion, if nobody agrees with it or not – not sure about his idea of winning something, I think success for most fans is top six on a regular basis and a good cup run

    Shola, Carver and Graves , your all a disgrace

    Shola licked arse while angling for the job he’s now in , Carvers at it again, and Pete Graves should know better ..Newcastle United is being starved of oxygen and ambition .

    Do the above 3 not realise we as a Football club and our support is being manipulated for one man’s greed? .

    Remember ..not allowed to win a Cup ..no cup runs was the directive ..and just to stay in the league .

    Don’t win a thing while I’m taking your money and promoting Sports Direct.

    It’s Ashley FC now . Newcastle United have ceased to exsist .

    Pete Graves your a turncoat ..Shola your the same ..and if any of Carvers family are reading this ..tell him he has let Newcastle United Supporters down .

    Judas , all three .

    Thats a Joke saying Bruce wants carr back at the club .

    He’s not even manager as yet ..its Ashley who wants carr back after Rafa went his own way on the scouts.

    Ashley wants carr back to do his Scouting and stick with the original money making plan ..buy cheap, sell on in 2 years..make money that can be diverted into corner shops.

    It’s amazing how people will prostitute themselves for money .

    No principles or scruples …lowest of the low.

    but you can’t tell me that inside all the venom towards the lad from Corbridge there’s not a small part of you that would love to see, against all odds he transforms the club and wins something?

    Malta Mag previous 192

    “Against all odds” that’s the only part of your post I agree with, We are set up to survive season after season in the Prem,sometimes by the skin of our teeth, sometime we fail !!! we are not set up to win trophies,

    Whatever Ashley does it for his own ends .

    Not for the supporters .

    He’s got a hold on a cash cow and he’s not letting go even when the asking price is on the table .
