Hartlepool United are plotting a move to sign prolific Newcastle United starlet Elias Sorensen in the January window, according to the Hartlepool Mail.

The newspaper claim the 19-year-old striker is on the radar of the County Durham-based National League outfit as the Premier League club prepare to loan him in the winter window.

The Hartlepool Mail report Newcastle are eager for Sorensen to get senior playing time after his eyecatching form for the club’s youth team this season.

The teenager has been a goal machine for the club’s Under-23s this season, netting 10 goals in 10 Premier League 2 fixtures as well as three in three EFL Trophy games.

He is a rising star who is probably not yet ready for the Premier League, but many league clubs will be interested.
