While much of the talk surrounding Newcastle United over the course of the weekend centred around fan protests, player debuts and a first game for Steve Bruce at St. James’ Park, the Transfer Tavern are bringing you the latest news in regards to some of the other names of the club’s payroll in the latest installment of our Loan Watch feature.
Freddie Woodman – Swansea City
Freddie Woodman has taken over as Swansea City’s first-choice goalkeeper since moving on loan from Newcastle United and his performance against Derby County will help ensure that stays the case.
The 22-year-old kept his first clean sheet in a Swansea shirt and topped it off with a penalty save as well as being named Man of the Match by WhoScored.
Aside from stopping Martyn Waghorn’s effort from the spot, Woodman made three saves and one high claim.
Jacob Murphy – Sheffield Wednesday
It took Jacob Murphy less than two minutes to get a goal on his Sheffield Wednesday debut against Barnsley, as he latched onto a loose ball in the box and played a low shot across Samuel Sahin-Radlinger, as shown on the officialswfc YouTube channel.
He also had a hand in the second of Wednesday’s two goals, as his run on the ball started the move which led to Steven Fletcher’s goal.
The 24-year-old also completed one key pass, five dribbles, three tackles and 80% of his passes, as per WhoScored.
Dan Barlaser – Rotherham United
Dan Barlaser (pictured above playing for Accrington Stanley in April) played 57 minutes for Rotherham United as they lost 2-0 to Lincoln City, before being replaced by Ben Wiles, as per WhoScored.
It was an own goal from Shaun MacDonald and a goal from Harry Anderson either side of half time which secured the points for Lincoln.
This was his second league game of the season, after the Turkish midfielder played 68 minutes in a 2-1 win against AFC Wimbledon.
