Newcastle United have reportedly agreed to sell Dan Barlaser to Championship side Rotherham United.
According to the Chronicle, the 23-year-old will join Rotherham on a permanent basis once he’s completed his medical, after a deal was agreed between the two clubs.
It is claimed that Newcastle have included a huge resale clause in the deal that could earn them 50% of any future transfer fees.
The report adds that the midfielder has had “several options” this summer with clubs interested in him, but he’s decided to return to Rotherham after a successful loan spell with them last season.
Barlaser has made two appearances in the Newcastle first-team at the start of the new season and both have been in the Carabao Cup, but realistically is on the fringes of the senior group and has spent a lot of time out on loan in the past.
The central midfielder is a product of the Toon academy and has done enough to earn himself a permanent move to the Championship.
He was an important player last season during Rotherham’s promotion from League One and is now set to rejoin them.
Newcastle already have a wealth of options in the centre of the park and manager Steve Bruce needs to work out his preferred options, as he still has Matty Longstaff to return from injury to add to the current stars.
