Shola Ameobi Recalls Another Youngster From Loan Spell


Newcastle defender Kelland Watts was training with the first-team a few weeks ago. He had returned to Newcastle recently for rehabilitation after getting injured in early November in the First Round of the FA Cup.

Kelland returned to Stevenage last week and played 57 minutes in a 0-0 draw against Colchester on Saturday.

However, that will be the last appearance for the 20-year-old at the League Two club. Newcastle have decided to recall Watts from the loan spell.

This is an interesting move as Newcastle have two center-backs returning for tomorrow’s match in Ciaran Clark and Paul Dummett. Jamaal Lascelles is also very close to coming back from his broken leg.

Newcastle don’t give a concrete reason for the youngster’s return saying the following:

Despite briefly heading back to the Lamex Stadium, Watts has now returned to St. James’ Park following discussions with Newcastle’s loan coordinator Shola Ameobi and Stevenage head coach Graham Westley.

Since it was Shola Ameobi who was involved, we suspect that Newcastle will look for another loan opportunity for Kelland at a higher level than League Two.

If that is the case, then we think this is a good move by Newcastle. Watts played very well at Stevenage and may need better competition to help his development.

Watts is the third youngster to be recalled this season. Elias Sorensen was recalled after not playing much at Carlisle while Nathan Harker’s loan spell at Blyth Spartans was also cut short.

Earlier this month Liam Gibson’s loan to Grimsby Town expired. We would expect the left-back to go out on another loan to a League One or Championship side for the remainder of the season.

How Will Newcastle Fare At Wolves On Saturday?

    Jiblet’s,
    When I see the word probably in one of your posts, I can rest assured that it is very improbable.

    He’s had a lot of game time at Stevenage so I can’t see that it’s them ending the loan. He’s possibly being considered for inclusion into the 1st team match day squad.

    So we need a centre forward or, at least a goal scorer and who does the regime pursue? A winger called Adebola Lukewarm, a journeyman with a reported dodgy attitude!
    I give up with this shower of losers!
