Newcastle United have already loaned out multiple teenage talents this summer, and more could follow between now and the end of the transfer window.

Yankuba Minteh and Garang Kuol have been the two most high profile departures. The former was immediately sent to Feyenoord after his £6million arrival at St James’ Park. As for Kuol, he has joined another side in the Eredivisie. He is playing for Volendam, who have lost their opening two games this season.

Eddie Howe has decided that one teenager in Lewis Miley is going nowhere, while he is actually about to add another to his squad with 18-year-old Lewis Hall due to arrive from Chelsea.

Once he signs on the dotted line at Newcastle, the club will turn their attention to outgoings. There are plenty of players who the Magpies are looking to sell, as well as various youngsters who need to go out and get senior football.

And one of those is Jay Turner-Cooke.

Newcastle could loan out Jay Turner-Cooke

According to the Chronicle, Newcastle could now send Turner-Cooke out on loan this summer.

The 19-year-old has been with the senior team in pre-season, and actually scored the winner against Gateshead in Newcastle’s first friendly back in July. He was also involved in the Premier League Summer Series out in America.

Howe is a big fan of Turner-Cooke, and has previously called him a ‘real talent‘. However, he has been unable to give him any senior exposure during the first two games of the new Premier League season.

The midfielder is yet to make his senior debut for Newcastle, and could now leave the club on loan. He did just that in January, joining League Two outfit Tranmere Rovers. You have to imagine that he will get a similar move this summer, with Turner-Cooke desperately in need of first-team football.

There is no way that he is going to get that at Newcastle, so a loan move is absolutely for the best. He looked decent in pre-season, but is not going to get minutes under Howe. There is simply far too much competition in midfield.

Hopefully another move to League Two or even League One is on the horizon for the local lad.
