Terry McPhillips has revealed his delight at being able to secure the services of Newcastle United striker Elias Sørensen on loan.
The Seasiders saw off competition from a number of interested sides to bring the Denmark Under-21 international to Bloomfield Road, who has built a reputation as a lethal finisher at youth level.
“Elias has just returned from international duty, where he has scored twice for Denmark’s under-21s in two games against Mexico, adding to what has already been an impressive first-half of the season,” the manager said.
“He’s scored 19 goals in all competitions for Newcastle’s under-23s and is the top scorer in Premier League 2 Division 2.
“We’re bringing him to the club to add to the goalscoring department and he’s raring to go for the opportunity.
“We’re delighted to have him and thank Newcastle United for allowing the loan move to happen. We had a similar arrangement with Sean Longstaff last season and it’s been great to watch his development since, making his Premier League debut at Anfield and playing more games since.
“Hopefully Elias can have a similar impact with us and return to Newcastle United benefitting from the whole experience.”
