Newcastle United have confirmed that young striker Isaac Westerndorf has signed for the club on an initial 18-month contract after a successful trial.
The 19-year-old impressed at Non-league level for Barking and has been on trial over the past few months, featuring in a few U23 fixtures and finding the net in both.
After impressing within the club’s Academy, Newcastle have announced that he’s now signed a deal until the summer of 2023 after he was named in NUFC’s U23 squad for tonight’s Premier League 2 clash with Nottingham Forest.
He actually scored the first goal of this new era at Newcastle back in October last year, bagging in a 4-0 win over Birmingham after latching onto the end of a Jonjo Shelvey through ball.
The big man showed his quality again just a few days after his opening goal for the club, scoring one and assisting another in a 3-1 win over Newcastle Benfield for our U23s.
Good luck to him – let’s hope he’s knocking on the first-team door before too long!
