Newcastle United deadline day loan pair looking forward to facing Sunderland

3 years ago

Newcastle United pair Dan Barlaser and Luke Charman are set to face Sunderland.

Deadline day loan moves have seen the pair join Accrington Stanley, initially until January.

Despite a very limited budget, Accrington won League Two last season an d are confounding the experts with a start of two wins and two draws in the opening five games, putting them eighth at the minute.

The Newcastle United striker (Charman) and midfielder (Barlaser) looking to help them keep that form going.

Both players starred as Newcastle United Under 23s hammered Sunderland 5-0 earlier this month, Charman scoring twice.

On 8 December Barlaser and Charman will hopefully get the opportunity to repeat that scoreline when Accrington Stanley host the mackems.

Dan Barlaser:

“I’m delighted to be here.

“Looking at the fixtures and the results the club has had recently they’ve started really well.

“Stanley had a tremendous season last season, and they played very good football which suits me.

“I like to play in the middle, although I can play in a three and I’ve played a couple of times behind the frontman, but I’m more favoured for a central role.

“I’ll chip in with a couple of goals but more assists. At Newcastle I was more of a traditional No.8 or No.4, so I like to take people on and get assists really.

“I could have come here last year and I didn’t, but I probably should have because of the way things panned out.

“The style of play at Crewe didn’t really suit me, and I didn’t get as much game time as I wanted. I played here last season for them when Stanley won, so I have played here before.

“All I want to do is play football – good football so that the fans enjoy it and hopefully I can do that.”

Luke Charman:

“I’m excited.

“I’m a bit shocked because it’s come a bit out of the blue as I only found out this morning, but I’m very excited.

“I’m hoping that I can score plenty of goals, help the team to do well, and try to make a name for myself.

“I am someone who’s going to work hard for the team, do a lot of running and put a shift in.

“(Dan Barlaser) is one of my good friends and I think it will help me having at least one person there that I know.

“He’s already been in touch to tell me that the lads are really sound.”
