Elliot Anderson seems destined to be a star at Newcastle United.
The youngster broke into the first-team last season under Steve Bruce, and even got a couple of substitute appearances.
His debut came in the FA Cup defeat to Arsenal, but showed some nice touches as the Magpies lost in extra time.
Anderson made his Premier League debut just nine days later, and once again it was at the Emirates. And once again it was a late substitute cameo, and once again Newcastle lost in North London.
Since then, the teenager hasn’t featured for the Newcastle first-team. He’s trained with the senior side, but injuries have seemingly cost him an opportunity.
But Anderson is fit once again, and netted a hat-trick for the Under-23 side on Monday night. It was a message to Eddie Howe, who must be excited about the potential Anderson has.
But could we soon see him in the first-team?

The players can be seen working on attacking drills, while Martin Dubravka makes a stunning double save.
But one player who is heavily involved is Anderson. The 19-year-old scored a stunner past Freddie Woodman, and can be seen linking up with Newcastle’s other attackers.
Injury disrupted his pre-season, while he hasn’t been on the bench in the Premier League since the 2-1 defeat to Wolves last month.
Hopefully that changes soon and we can see Anderson in the Premier League. Despite our newfound wealth, fans will want to see local lads coming through the academy and donning the famous black and white stripes.
Anderson wasn’t the only youngster involved in first-team training. He was joined by Dylan Stephenson, Matty Bondswell and Jack Young.
