The Yorkshire Post are reporting that Callum has earned a trail at League One club Rotherham United. Rotherham is where Newcastle midfielder Dan Barlaser is currently on loan. He is said to be heading there this week to start his trial.
Roberts had a trial last month at Middlesborough but failed to secure a contract. He ended up joining Lee Clark at Blyth late last month. He has proven that he is at least a few levels above the National League North as he has scored 7 goals in his 8 appearances.
The 22-year-old made just 2 first-team appearances for Newcastle. He was released this summer after failing to get a new deal. It would be great if Callum could get a deal at Rotherham and play again with fellow local lad Dan Barlaser.
