Newcastle United Starlet Ready To Stay On And Fight For His Place: Should Bruce Keep Him?

In a recent interview with Chronicle Live, Newcastle United youngster Elias Sorensen revealed that he is keen on staying and fighting for his place in Steve Bruce’s squad this season. The Danish forward shared his thoughts with Chronicle Live and said, “It’s up to the manager now.

“It depends what he wants me to do.

“Personally I’d rather stay and fight for a place, but it’s up to him.

“If he wants me to go out on loan I’ll do that.”

The Rapid Rise Of Elias Sorensen

The 19-year-old managed to make his first-team debut for the Magpies during their pre-season tour of China. He is a prolific goal-getter after finding the back of the net over 20 times for both club and country in the previous campaign.

He was sent out on loan to play for Blackpool last season. Hence, the Danish wonderkid will now be desperate for regular first-team opportunities this season. Sorensen will only benefit from earning more game time, so a move away from the Tyneside might be his best option to do so.

The former HB Koge youth player has also represented Denmark at various youth levels and could get a chance to play for his nation at the senior level if he can prove his worth in this campaign.

What Does The Danish Striker Offer On The Pitch?

Sorensen is blessed with incredible pace, which allows him to make some well-timed runs behind the opposition backline. He can also be a clinical finisher in the final third when he is firing on all cylinders on the field. However, the Danish prospect is still quite raw and would need time to hone his skills before he is ready to step up with the big boys in the Premier League.

Steve Bruce should only keep him at St. James’ Park if he intends to give the Danish forward some first-team chances. Otherwise, they should consider sending him out on loan this summer. The Magpies have currently got some talented strikers in their ranks with Miguel Almiron and Joelinton leading the charge for the Magpies first-team in the top tier of England.

Should The Magpies Keep Sorensen At Tyneside For The 2019-20 Campaign?

However, Bruce does not have too much quality in attack with an injury-prone Andy Carroll, an unproven Yoshinori Muto and an inconsistent Dwight Gayle playing as back-ups in his squad. Thus, Newcastle should explore the possibility of giving Sorensen a chance this season if he can perform well in training over the next couple of weeks.
