According to the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder, Elias Sorensen is still keen to commit to a new long-term deal at Newcastle – despite claims that talks had ‘stalled’ after he rejected he club’s initial contract offer.
The in-form U-23 striker has scored an incredible 18 goals already this season for our second string, so it’s no surprise to hear that we’re keen to see him sign – especially when his current deal is due to expire next summer.
The story states that he rejected our initial offer of £1.800 per week, however Ryder insists that ‘both parties’ are hopeful that an agreement will be reached.
A loan deal is likely next month if and when he signs a new deal, but the piece reveals that the Dane does NOT want to be loaned out until AFTER Newcastle’s Checkatrade Trophy clash with Sunderland – which is due to take place on Tuesday 8th January.
Here’s what Sorensen has said about the U-23’S date with Sunderland’s first team:
“It will be our biggest match throughout the season.
“It’s against the arch rivals, and it’s probably the only derby the fans will get this season.
“It can be the best day of my life.
“Our fans will make fun of their fans for the rest of their lives so it will be huge to win the match.”
