Newcastle United official statement confirms top young talent has left the club to sign elsewhere

Newcastle United have confirmed that teenage sensation Bobby Clark has left the club after completing a move to Liverpool.

The 16-year-old has been heavily linked with a move for several weeks now, however the England youth international has now officially packed his bags and signed on Merseyside.

Son of former Mag Lee Clark, the talented midfielder was deemed to be one of the Academy’s top prospects, making his early exit yet all the more disappointing.

Here’s the official statement released by the club today (via, confirming that our former U18 star has joined Liverpool:

Teenager Bobby Clark has joined Liverpool’s Academy from Newcastle United.

The 16-year-old joins the Reds’ youth set-up after his switch from the Magpies was finalised on Thursday.

Midfielder Clark, the son of former Newcastle player Lee, has represented England at under-16 level.

He may be a local lad who will have dreamt of making it at his boyhood club, but can we really blame him for accepting Liverpool’s offer?

Not only has our Academy been neglected for far too long, the likes of Matty Longstaff has been handled so poorly since his breakthrough under Steve Bruce almost two years ago.

Good luck to Bobby – a brilliant young talent who will be one to watch over the comings years I’m sure.

  3. Another talent away ,and who can blame him moving on from a club devoid of any ambition,an owner who couldn’t give a shit as long as the cash is rolling in, and backing a third rate manager, Christ he’s turned us into a premier league laughing stock.
