There’s Good News And Bad News With Youngster’s Loan Deal

On Sunday, it was reported that Newcastle were tracking Carlisle center-back Jarrad Branthwaite. The 17-year-old has broken into the Carlisle first-team over the past six weeks and is now part of their starting center-back pairing.

The Shields Gazette have added some interesting information on the 6’4″ defender that should excite Newcastle fans.

Apparently, as part of the Elias Sorensen loan deal, Newcastle have the right of first refusal on the youngster. If have Newcastle genuine interest in the youngster, then they have the first crack at him.

He is reportedly valued at only £1m so he could be an excellent addition to Newcastle’s youth set up. They could even get Branthwaite in January and just send him back to Carlisle on loan for the rest of the season.

The news is not as good on the loan spell for the 20-year-old Sorensen, however. He missed out on Carlisle’s 2-2 FA Cup tie at Forest Green on Saturday. He had missed out the week before against Cambridge but that was through illness.

The Shields Gazette also have some comments from Carlisle’s new manager Chris Beech on why Sorensen missed out this past weekend.

“Elias Sorensen and Christie Elliott missed out as well.

“There was no real reason other than if we were at home I probably would have tended to have a third striker on the bench.

“Down here I knew we were going to be put under pressure, and I’m glad we did have the extra defender.”

This is not good for Elias. Under Steven Pressley, Sorensen at least made the bench. However, Beech could choose to bring an extra defender for away matches, which could further limit opportunities for the Danish striker.

We are not sure of what impact recalling Sorensen could have on any deal for Jarrad Branthwaite, but Newcastle need to do what’s best for the youngster’s development. That doesn’t appear to be staying at Carlisle currently.

Jarrad Branthwaite also missed the FA Cup match with a virus. Carlisle travel to face Morecambe on Saturday, which is where Jarrad Branthwaite scored his debut goal in the EFL Trophy earlier this season.

We’ll have to see if Sorensen can make his way into this week’s squad.

    No im suggesting Jabba has a habit of buying loads of players from one agent under suspicious circumstances
    Just like the last time, some of which are still under investigation

    Welsh unfortunately your deliberately irritating contrariness has passed through the irritation barrier and floated endlessly into the who gives a &£@# void.

    So yet again we get excited by a prospect child, screaming to bring them into first team, while in the real world they would struggle for a game for the spartans? Ellias, join the ranks of Paul Brayson, Michael Chopra, Bjarni Gudjonson and countless others. On the plus side we have first refusal on a 4th tier 17 year old CB who is only in thd team due to injuries. No offence guys, but nothing to see here.

    Toon 22, what I’m saying is that it’s kinda irrelevant unless it becomes a long term trend.

    Manquillo came from Stellar, Krafth is with Global Soccer, Willems is with Pro Athlete, almiron is with some guy called Daniel Campo.

    Two swallows does not a summer make.

    Can’t believe the pressure is starting to come on Eddie Howe. The miracles he’s worked with Bournemouth are beyond the reckoning of mere mortals.

    Even if they were to be relegated at some point, you’d fancy his chances of bringing them straight back up.

    I do sometimes despair at what this game is becoming.

    The table would look better if we improved on our -9 goal difference and a few wins between now and January we’d be looking to see if Bruce gets Manager of the Month

    Hope springs eternal
