Newcastle United will loan academy graduate Dan Barlaser to Turkish Super Lig club Besiktas next season according to the Chronicle Live.
The 20-year-old Gateshead born midfield ace is highly rated by The Magpies and it is believed that the club are desperate to loan the player out to gain first team playing experience.
Turkish club Besiktas have reportedly been tracking the youngster’s progress for a number of months and manager Senol Gunes is thought to be set to strike a deal with the Tynesiders to loan the player next season after failing to land Barlaser in January.
Joining Besiktas would be an excellent move for the youngster with the Turkish club set to play in the UEFA Champions League next season while the Super Lig can produce some feisty atmospheres which will undoubtedly toughen the player up in preparation for more first team opportunities with parent club Newcastle United.
After being impressed with Barlaser’s performances for The Magpies’ Under-23s side, United boss Rafa Benitez handed the midfielder his senior debut in the 3-1 FA Cup Third Round Replay victory over Birmingham City in January. Barlaser added another appearance to his tally in the next round at Oxford United as The Magpies bowed out of the competition.
Barlaser’s father originates from Turkey and the youngster has represented the country at Under 16 and Under 17 level before opting to feature for England at Under 18 level.
