It has been confirmed that Elias Sorensen is back at Newcastle.
The striker went out on loan to League One side Blackpool in January, and it looked like a great chance for him to get some first-team experience.
The youngster was electric in front of goal earlier in the season for the Newcastle Under-23s team, resulting in a lot of fans asking for Rafa Benitez to give him a chance in the senior side.
That didn’t happen, and at the time it seemed like a loan was a better option for Sorensen. However, his time at Bloomfield Road was a nightmare.
The Danish striker made just one appearance for Blackpool, enjoying 32 minutes of action for the club. With minutes limited, he is now back on Tyneside, with Jamie Sterry and Cal Roberts also being recalled from Crewe and Colchester respectively.
The trio will now return to Ben Dawson’s Under-23 squad.
Newcastle supporters are disappointed that the loan move didn’t work out for Sorensen, and so are the Blackpool fans.
Blackpool fans react to Sorensen departure
Well that was a waste of everyone’s time. Don’t understand why Sorensen wasn’t given a chance seeing as we are crying out for a striker who scores goals

Absolutely shocking he hasn’t been played more, this lad has more talent than most of our forwards – sorry to say he has gone back and not had the privilege to see him in Tangerine

What an absolute waste

Absolute joke this! Better striker than anyone in our club, watched him a couple of time for U23’s at Newcastle, shocking man management of players from Terry Mac IMO

Disappointing he didn’t get a proper chance. Unless he didn’t train well and had a poor attitude? We also have Kirby who’s hardly played. Problem is if we don’t use loan players well then teams will be reluctant to send us them in the first place?

They probably looked at our cabbage patch pitch and training ground and thought, injury maker

There were reports that injury would see Sorensen get a chance at Blackpool, but just hours later it was confirmed that he was heading home.
Sorensen’s move to Blackpool has turned out to be a disaster and is exactly why Newcastle are reportedly keen to hire a loan manager.
