Newcastle United Hoping To Sign Chelsea Goalkeeper On Emergency Loan Deal

Posted by

Magpies are currently without both Tim Krul and Rob Elliot.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will be hoping that Chelsea don’t hold a grudge after his Magpies side ended their unbeaten start to the season on Saturday, with the St. James’ Park outfit keen on bringing in third choice Blues goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer on an emergency loan deal according to the Sun.

Newcastle may be allowed to make an emergency loan signing because their two senior goalkeepers, Tim Krul and Rob Elliot, are both injured – with the latter coming off to be replaced by youngster Jak Alnwick during the victory over Mourinho’s men.

The Magpies’ ability to bring Schwarzer in as soon as possible could depend on whether the authorities rule that Alnwick represents a senior goalkeeper, which could forced Newcastle to stick with a player whose only previous first team experience came during a short loan spell with non-league Gateshead three years ago.

Alnwick is technically fourth choice goalkeeper at the club, but Karl Darlow is currently on a season long loan deal at Nottingham Forest with no recall clause, leaving the Magpies in a sticky situation following both Krul and Elliot being ruled out.

Schwarzer could represent a solid solution, with the Aussie nowhere near breaking past Thibaut Courtois and Petr Cech to make it into the Chelsea first team.
