Report – Newcastle Tracking Sixteen-Year-Old English Right-Back



Luke Matheson is a 16-year-old right-back who plays for Rochdale in League One. Matheson broke into the Rochdale first-team last season and became the club’s youngest player at 15 years and 336 days. He ended the season making 7 total appearances.

This season he has 6 appearances with 3 of those being starts in the League. Last night, Matheson scored the leveler against Manchester United in the Carabao Cup for his first goal.

The Chronicle have a report that Newcastle have been tracking the youngster since last season when he made his debut for Rochdale.

Newcastle have reportedly been looking to add talented youngsters to the academy. Apparently, Matheson is one of the players they have been tracking. His profile has gotten a little more prominent after last night’s goal at Old Trafford.

    Wishful thinking perhaps but the club does look as if it is set up for a sale.
    Only basic maintenance to the ground and training centre.
    Bruce. Is he a temporary manager ? Well he won’t cost much to sack.
    Or will he. It was reported he is only on 1M a year.
    14/15 players will contracts that expire in June 2021 or earlier.

    Bruce may be cheap in wages but his appointment has cost Ashley 10,000 fans per home game and possibly worse to come.

    We are not for sale no matter what crap Ashley spews from his mouth. Any interested buyers are soon out off when they realise how quickly the goal posts move when dealing with Ashley

    If we were for sale he’d have given Rafa a three year deal and let him spend that transfer dish as he saw fit, we’d be sitting around sixth now and looking very attractive to a buyer, as it happens……….

    Best news – Shelvey out. Whether he;s putting it on or not after reading fan’s opinion of him after his latest disgraceful display I don’t care. He’s out and it;ll be either the returning Longstaff or Ki.

    Sorry Jonjo, but it appears you are incapable of conquering yourself. Been here years now and had a good initial couple of months, good season in the Champ and then a 3 month spell prior to the WC. Not good enough because when you’re not in that kind of form you’re a liability – it’s either rare 8+/10 performances or 4-/10 performances and there have been many more of those.

    Would prefer us not to rush Longstaff back from injury if possible Bruce seems to be chucking guys in when they are half fit all the time and they then just get setbacks all the time!

    Shelvey out is interesting, apparently he had words with Bruce when subbed last weekend , injured or not wanting to play Bruce’s tactics or maybe Bruce just dropped him for his outburst – doesn’t really matter but if it’s any of the latter it’s not looking good if he’s losing the dressing room already

    Mindshaft,
    That goodwill from slating Rafa and saying Brucie likes to give him a cuddle didn’t last long then!

    More likely Shelvey reading post-match stuff and not liking it, throwing a strop. Just like Gayle has been on strike because no doubt he read fan after fan saying get rid of him for Rondon – bollocks as he been injured, too much doesn’t add up with his mystery injury.

    Get rid of both in January.
