Newcastle United have confirmed that youngster Elias Sorensen has exited St James’ Park on loan to join Carlisle United – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are not pleased with the news.
The Magpies have confirmed on their official website on Friday afternoon that the 19-year-old attacker has joined League Two club Carlisle on a season-long loan.
He is a highly-rated teenage striker that has been a real success for the Magpies at Under-23s level, but is yet to make his first-team debut for the club.
The Danish centre-forward has represented his country up to Under-21 level and is an exciting prospect, but will not be involved in the plans of manager Steve Bruce.
Jorgensen had an unsuccessful loan spell at Blackpool last season where he played just once and his real development has come at youth level.
The attacker needs first-team minutes though if he is to make the step up and he may have a great opportunity to prove himself in League Two.
Newcastle seemingly can afford to let the young striker go, as they already have the likes of Joelinton, Yoshinori Muto and Dwight Gayle as senior forward options.
A selection of Newcastle supporters on social media feel Sorensen’s move to Carlisle will benefit him, while others wanted him to stay and try force his way into the first-team squad.
Here are some Newcastle fans commenting on Sorensen:
Disappointed. Really wanted him to get a chance in the first team

He needs to play. His loan spell at Blackpool was a complete waste of time.

League 2 at 19. On the path to becoming not even an Armstrong, but an Adam Campbell.
