Elias Sorensen speaks about his Newcastle United future

Newcastle United youngster Elias Sorensen says he would rather stay at the club and fight for a first-team chance than go out on loan again.

The Danish teenager joined Blackpool temporarily last term, but made just one appearance for the club before being swiftly recalled by the Magpies.

The 19-year-old simply wasn’t getting picked and Newcastle felt it best to cut the move short in order to get him back with the U23s where he had been banging in the goals.

Sorensen scored 16 goals in all competitions and was seemingly knocking on the door of the first-team, before his form was interrupted by the failed loan move.

He said (Chronicle): “It’s up to the manager now. It depends what he wants me to do.

“Personally I’d rather stay and fight for a place, but it’s up to him. If he wants me to go out on loan I’ll do that.”

TBR’s view

Many Newcastle fans want to see Sorensen involved with the first-team, and it remains to be seen if Steve Bruce will give him the chance Benitez never did.

The popular youngster clearly has a great eye for goal and could be worth a punt if club-record signing Joelinton struggles to find his feet.

Given Andy Carroll’s rotten injury record and Dwight Gayle’s previous struggles in the Premier League, there may just be an opening for him in 2019/20.
