Newcastle United youngster Mo Sangare has officially left on a season-long loan to Accrington Stanley, as per the latter’s official website.
He becomes Accrington’s fifth summer signing and was actually with their development squad when he was younger but problems with work permits meant that he was unable to sign at that time.
Sangare went on trial at various clubs before joining the Magpies in 2016. Since arriving at St. James’ Park, the 21-year old has played in a total of 65 games in all competitions at youth level, scoring two goals and making a further three assists, according to Transfermarkt.
Does Sangare have a future at Newcastle?
He is also a full senior international for Liberia, famously the country that George Weah represented, as he has two caps since making his debut under coach Thomas Kojo back on the 24th March last year (via the website).
However, with the likes of Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Matty Longstaff and indeed Sean Longstaff currently among the options for Steve Bruce in the central midfield role, perhaps it is a wise idea for Sangare to go out on loan to continue his development.
At 21 years of age, he still has plenty of time to grow into his position, and with a successful season on loan at Accrington, Sangare may force his way into the first team under Bruce in the 2021/22 term.
He describes himself as “aggressive and powerful,” so in this case Sangare should have no problems adapting to men’s football.
Stanley boss John Coleman also claimed that he “is a strong presence,” and so the 1.91-metre powerhouse may well be an exciting player to watch out for in the EFL League One.
