Newcastle United finally managed to get their first three points of the season at the weekend when they recorded a 1-0 win against Watford on Saturday.
Rafa Benitez’s side now sit outside the relegation zone, however, they will need to start producing more of the same results if they are to have any chance of survival.
Goals have been a problem for the Magpies as they have only managed to find the back of the net on seven occasions so far, which has led calls for Elias Sorensen to get a chance in the first-team.
The Danish striker has been excelling for the developmental side, having already scored 13 times, including a brace against Manchester United’s second string on Friday night.
It is rumoured that Newcastle could be prepared to loan him out in January to any potential clubs in either League One or League Two in order to get a taste of first-team football and step his development up further.
Newcastle would certainly be doing the right thing by sending Sorensen out on loan to one of the lower leagues as he would gain valuable experience and would be able to learn more about his game.
It would be too easy for the Magpies to put the 19-year-old into the first-team at the moment, however, such a move could actually have a negative impact on his development and chances of progressing in the future.
Should he continue to perform well away from the club if he does head out on loan, then he could look at using the next pre-season as his opportunity of making an impact on the senior side and look to push his way into the manager’s thoughts – whoever that may be.
