Danish teenager gets international clearance to play on Saturday

5 years ago

Elias Fritjof Sorensen has at last been given the ok to play for Newcastle United.

The striker arrived last month from HB Koge, after becoming the youngest ever player to make a first team appearance for the Danish club.

Newcastle have confirmed that the 17 year old has now received international clearance and could play for United’s Academy side when they travel to Derby County tomorrow.

Bouncing back after a shocking season last year, the NUFC Under 18s have won four and draw one of their opening five matches, topping the Premier League Under 18 league.

Newcastle United official statement:

‘Danish teenager Elias Fritjof Sorensen could make his first appearance for Newcastle United when Dave Watson’s under-18s travel to Derby on Saturday.

International clearance has now been received for the forward ahead of the 12.30pm kick-off at the Rams’ Moor Farm Academy.

But Watson may resist the temptation to make too many changes to the side which beat Wolves last weekend.

United are top of the Under-18 Premier League with four victories and a draw from their opening five games, while Derby have won twice so far and sit in ninth.

Callum Smith trained with Rafa Benitez’s first team on Friday and is also named in the squad, while England under-17 international Mackenzie Heaney will be looking to continue his strong start to the campaign.’
