Newcastle: Rodrigo Vilca seals loan exit

Newcastle: Rodrigo Vilca seals loan exit -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United correspondent Lee Ryder has shared news of Rodrigo Vilca’s loan move to Universitario de Deportes.

The Lowdown: Vilca’s Doncaster spell

The 22-year-old, who signed for the Magpies back in October 2020, was sent out on loan to Doncaster Rovers in the summer.

A temporary move to the League One side didn’t exactly go to plan, however, with the attacking midfielder making just seven league starts for the club.

Former manager Richie Wellens labelled Vilca as ‘quality’, but he has since returned to St. James’ Park and is on the move once again.

The Latest: Peru return

As reported by Ryder and shared on Twitter, Vilca has returned to his native country to join Universitario de Deportes on loan.

He is set to be watched by loan manager Shola Ameobi over the coming months and may still have a future with the Magpies after previously training with the first-team group under Eddie Howe.

The Verdict: This loan key?

After struggling for game time at Doncaster, you’d expect that Vilca will need to make his mark over the coming months to have any chance of a long-term future at St. James’ Park.

His latest exit is one that has gone under the radar, with Newcastle yet to share the news on any of their official social media platforms or websites.

That could well be telling on how Newcastle view Vilca at this moment in time, but hopefully, he’ll start to catch Ameobi’s eye back in Peru.
