Newcastle United players who have had loan spells

Newcastle United announced on Saturday that exciting youngster Joe White will spend the rest of the season on loan at Hartlepool.

The Carlisle-born prospect, whose performances for the U23s this season have sparked interest from Chelsea and Wolves, now has a chance to make an impression in professional play.

Another highly rated Toon prospect, 19-year-old Elliot Anderson from Whitley Bay, could also be on the move.

The striker remained in England while the first team traveled to Saudi Arabia for training in the hot weather due to the possibility of getting a loan before the window slammed shut.

Speaking to the media in Jeddah, manager Eddie Howe was candid about Anderson’s immediate future.

“With Elliot, we are looking into the possibility of loaning him out but nothing is confirmed on this,” he said.

Both players can draw inspiration from a plethora of young talent Newcastle have loaned out in the past. Many have used the experience on the road to propel their careers at Tyneside and become first-team stalwarts.

ChronicleLive takes a look at those who used the loan system to their advantage and had a drastic impact on the Magpies when they returned.

Steve Harper

The Newcastle academy manager had a rocky start to his professional life, learning his trade on loan at Bradford, Gateshead, Stockport, Hartlepool and Huddersfield.

He had a 20-year career at Newcastle – mostly serving as an understudy for Shay Given – but briefly held the top spot once the Irishman left.

Olivier Bernard

It’s easy to forget that Sir Bobby Robson loaned Bernard out to Darlington minnows in 2001 to help the Frenchman get to grips with the English game.

The free transfer would be part of the squad that reached the Champions League round of 16 and the UEFA Cup semi-finals.

The building blocks for a 13-year career at Tyneside came from a month-long stay at Wycombe when he was 17.

Taylor played under Arsenal legend Tony Adams and went on to a solid career at his boyhood club.

Tim Krul

The Dutchman made an unforgettable debut for Newcastle against Palermo in 2006, where he made countless saves to secure a crucial 1-0 UEFA Cup win.

A regular place in the starting XI was blocked by seasoned pros Shay Given and Steve Harper, but spells on loan at Falkirk and Carlisle gave Krul the platform to take the top spot in 2011.

Andy Carroll

The Gateshead lad played sparingly as he tried to qualify at St James’ Park.

Carroll’s loan spell at Preston in 2007/08 – where he scored one goal in 11 games – served as his apprenticeship for the professional game.

The 6ft 4in Geordie became a regular over the next three seasons before being sold to Liverpool for a staggering £35million.

Paul Dummet

Dummett, born in Kenton, has been registered with Newcastle since the age of nine.

After an initial struggle to break into the first team, the left-back spent time at Gateshead and St Mirren before returning to Newcastle and becoming a fixture in the team over the next decade.

Sean Longstaff

The North Shields midfielder had a brief stint at Kilmarnock in 2016… but it was at Blackpool that Longstaff’s older brother really made an impact.

He scored nine goals on a season-long loan to the Seasiders to catch the eye of Rafa Benitez, who rewarded him with his Premier League debut the following season.
