Young Magpie Joins League Two Club On Loan


Newcastle United have announced that Kelland Watts will join Mansfield Town on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 20-year-old Watts was recalled from Stevenage this month after making 20 appearances for the League Two club, who are currently in last place.

It’s interesting that Newcastle have sent Watts back to the same division rather than seeking a move at a higher level for the defender.

Here is Mansfield Town announcing the loan signing of Kelland.

This is what Mansfield manager Gary Coughlan had to say about the youngster:

“Kelland is a player who can play in numerous positions. He can play center-half in a two or a three, he can sit in front [of the defense] or he can go in at left-back.

“He is technically very good. He’s big, strong and suits the division. I would say his best position is a centre-half, but if he needs to, he’s comfortable in front of the back four.

“He knows what the division is about and he’s young, fit and hungry. He has a desire, work rate, and attitude, which is exactly what we’re looking to build here at this football club.”

We wish Kelland all the best at Mansfield and hope he proves to be a big asset to them for the rest of this campaign.

    Best of luck Kell.

    Seen him play for the youngsters a few times and with the right coaching and development he could be a decent player for the future.

    Thought they might’ve moved him up a league. Not seen much of him but what I have seen he’s decent enough. Still, game time probably guaranteed at that level so keep him ticking over

    Ive added you guys to the consortium, welcome!

    I too thought watts would have at least gone to league 1. Bit of a shame as continued progression always good. Will get game time still I guess.

    Lol! Even £1 is gratefully accepted. As is the £2 by cdog!!

    Speaking of alts, if job and his alts put in we would be only a couple hundred away from the target amount!! Perhaps toon22 is correct and they want ‘jabba’ to stay!! 😀

    I wouldn’t class him as a journalist myself more a self absorbed, puffed up wideboy with the football knowledge of a gerbil.

    Hope that helps your friend.

    If it came down to it that everything was agreed and all Mike Ashley had to do was sell or not sell and he didnt. Surely he cant come back from that. If it is really at this stage the only outcome in my mind is he will sell.

    If everything we have heard is true and we are at the final stage with price agreed with the bid coming from the Saudi prince there cant be no going back now surely not. The Saudis are not people to be messed with and if they have got this far thats been reported, well for me its such a strange feeling because in one hand im thinking he must sell if what we hear is true but then on the other hand i just can not see him selling this football club.

    Maybe twice burned and all that or in this case countless burns. Its the hope that kills us tho and my lesson was learnt from the summer. Just hope we find out one way of another this week.

    In a way I feel sorry for Pete Graves as he’s obviously a toon fan, but he also works for Sky so he will have to wait for the all clear to say anything at all.

    Bet he gets battered on Twitter at times like this.

    it does seem funny that ash is upset at leaks but then announces he’s talking to 2 rival bidders, YCMIU!!
    Surely no one is going to come close to the dream financial muscle of MSB and the Reubens.

    Then when the main takeover rumours stop, the mysterious other bidders disappear too never to be seen or heard again… or until next January!

    If jib contributed wouldn’t he be just buying what he already owns? I guess he’d still have a say in the advertising

    Graves going to post something on twitter later due to a lot of people not having Instagram.

    Probably just at his wits end like everyone else. I’m not expecting some fantastic news, just his own take on what’s already out there.

    Be nice if he had something new and exciting though!
