Newcastle United’s Elias Sorensen is set for a move to League Two Carlisle United, according to Football Insider.
The striker has fallen down the pecking order in Steve Bruce’s plans following the arrivals of Joelinton and Andy Carroll, so he is being loaned out in order to ensure he gets game time.
The 19-year-old has been prolific for the Magpies’ youth team, scoring 12 in 17 in Premier League Two last season, but also endured a frustrating one-month loan spell at Blackpool at the turn of the year, where he only played 32 minutes.
A drop down in level should provide him with more of an opportunity but he will have to contend with Hallam Hope and Harry McKirdy, with the latter having a goal and an assist to his name from just two appearances.
However, the Dane has also impressed in the EFL Trophy previously, his four goals in fives games suggest he has the quality to succeed in the lower leagues and it is a move which should work out for all parties.
This is a great move from Carlisle as Sorensen has the ability to excel in this league, and should certainly help to improve their attack.
They have got off to a good start despite several squad changes and if they play to Sorensen’s strengths then he should score plenty.
It is a good move for the striker, too.
He may not have to relocate and he will learn a lot from playing in the bottom tier. This is his chance to impress in professional football and if he does well he should get the chance further up the divisions.
