Newcastle United have confirmed on Wednesday morning the return of two loan players to St James Park.

Defender Josef Yarney has been out at Morecambe on loan.

The centre-back a regular starter in League Two and getting regular first team football to help in his progress.

However, the opposite has been the case with Luke Charman.

The striker went to League One Accrington Stanley with Dan Barlaser at the start of this season but whilst the midfielder has been first choice and is now staying at Stanley until te end of the season, Charman didn’t make a single league start.

Whilst injury played a part, the fact that Stanley had so many loan players (seven) and could only include five in any matchday squad, meant that Luke Charman hardly ever even made the bench.

It looks likely that the return of the likes of these two will help others to go out on loan for the second half of the season.

Charman’s return in particular will surely help see 19 goal Elias Sorensen go somewhere for regular first team football.

Newcastle United Official Statement:

Newcastle United youngsters Josef Yarney and Luke Charman have returned to the club following loan spells with Morecambe and Accrington respectively.

Centre half Yarney joined the League Two Shrimps for the first half of the campaign after featuring for the Magpies first team in pre-season, and made his bow against Exeter City in August.

In total the former Everton man, who made 30 outings for United’s second string last term, made 24 appearances at the heart of defence for Jim Bentley’s side, who currently sit 20th in the fourth tier.

And frontman Charman – who netted twice in three games for United’s under-23s prior to his loan at the Wham Stadium this season – has also now returned to St. James’ Park.

The 21-year-old initially joined League One side Stanley on loan in August, linking up with John Coleman’s men along with his Magpies teammate Dan Barlaser.

Charman made four appearances for Accy this term, after bagging 14 goals in 26 appearances for Newcastle’s second string in the 2017/18 campaign.’

    Our understanding is that a fan on a long-term deal who cancels their March payment will still have a valid season ticket for the remainder of the 2018-19 season – as long as they have made their final payment for this season in January or February.

    If they don’t pay that installment, they may risk their ticket getting cancelled for the remainder of this season. But the club will contact them for further information should they cancel their payment.

    While most clubs are announcing new signings,the “Headline News” from SJP is the return of two loanees
    Breathtaking news,guaranteed to dominate the sports pages tomorrow!!
    Dear Mike,
    Have you ever heard of the expression,”hang your head in shame”?
    do you know the definition of the word “conscience”?
    Are you aware,that when you depart this world(and I’m not talking about a ride on Virgin Galactica)you can’t take your money with you?
    and considering your final destination has little demons running around and numerous fires,wouldn’t you be better off spending your money on signing players,rather than sob at the sight of it being immediately incinerated,when you arrive “downstairs”??

    just a thought
