Seasiders Complete Loan Deal For Sørensen

Newcastle United Striker Arrives On Loan

21 January 2019

Blackpool Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of striker Elias Sørensen on loan from Newcastle United.

The recently capped Denmark Under-21 international arrives at Bloomfield Road on a deal until the end of the season, having scored two goals in two matches for his country last week.

A highly-regarded prospect at St James’ Park, Sørensen has found the net 19 times for Newcastle’s under-23 side this season, with four of those strikes coming in the Checkatrade Trophy.

The 19-year-old follows in the footsteps of Sean Longstaff by making a temporary switch to Blackpool and hopes to replicate the success that the midfielder had with the club last season.

“You see Sean getting a few games in the Premier League now and he went away to Blackpool and Kilmarnock, so a few loan spells for him worked very well,” Sørensen said.

“I spoke to him about it (this move) and he liked it when he was here. I thought it would be a great opportunity for me as well.

“I’m excited to see what it brings. Hopefully I can get a few games in League One and show what I’m capable of.”
