Loan Move Confirmed For Young Striker


Newcastle United have announced that 19-year-old striker will join Carlisle United on a season-long loan deal.

This is a big opportunity for Elias to continue his development. He scored 20 goals for the U-23s last term and this move for senior level football will be the next step in his growth.

Carlisle United have also confirmed the signing of the young Danish U-21 international. They sent out a little bit of a teaser beforehand as well.

This is what Carlisle manager Steven Pressley has said about his new striker:

“We’re delighted that we’ve got this over line. He was a main target, then he dropped off the radar, but it came alive again last week and we’ve managed to see it through.

“He can play as the number 9, or he can play tucked in close to the 9 and just off to the side. That’s not as a wide player, but tucked in tight and ready to react.

“He’s very mobile and quick and he scores goals. He hasn’t done that at League Two level yet, but that’s his next challenge.

“I think he’s a player the fans can get excited about and we’re looking forward to working with him.”

    Sorensen will get CUFC goals I’m sure and that will lead to a top four position.
    Pity we will have to wait for him to do that at NUFC

    I wonder if Elias will develop a wooly-back accent ?

    Some tosh again today regarding Bruces decision making (ha ha oh my sides) with Jetro. Of course its Bruces fault on any level you want.

    Bruce took the job knowing he was geting pre-arranged players and freebies brought in that he would have to ram into his side regardless of shape especially stupid thing to take on when the core of a better previous manager was largely there and .the forward men needed replacing not unfit lard barrels who don’t know what day it is yet.

    Willems was hopelessly off pace and unaware which should at least have been sussed during training.

    Bruce bunged him in without the lad knowing what his job was.

    it was an inexplicable sub anyway.

    feel free to add….

    If we have another protest think we should all go to Brunton Park, see Elias play, boost their coffers and enjoy some fine beers in the local taverns.

    For old school supporters Brunton Park is the largest football which is not all-seated so plenty of standing room.

    Capacity about 12,000 so plenty of room but record attendance was 27,500 in the FA Cup in 1957 which was probably a wee bit of a tight squeeze.

    A string of bad news from Daniel Farke at Colney. Klose, Zimmermann, Drmic definitely out for #nufc while McLean is also a major doubt. And in a further blow, Hernandez slipped at home yesterday and has damaged ligaments in his knee.

    If you don’t like your barber you go to a different barber.
    If you don’t like your coffee shop you go to a different coffee shop.

    If you don’t like your football club you go to ?

    I’m on a few days jollies just south Carlisle at the moment and saw Newcastle’s match against Arsenal in the town. Carlisle United is one of the results I look for, after Newcastle’s of course, So I hope the lad can knock in a canny few goals for CUFC this season.
