Newcastle United eye player exit with EFL keen
Newcastle could be set to allow another of their players to leave the squad before the deadline this week, with Joe White potentially available on loan.
According to The Chronicle, the Toon are preparing to let the youngster leave at short notice to get more regular football and with Hartlepool reportedly keen to bring him in, a deal is possible.
He is yet to manage a single league game for his current club, but he is a mainstay in their reserve team. In fact, he also played for them in the EFL Trophy and that’s where he’ll likely continue to get minutes if he stays at St James’ Park.

However, with the player proving he can be a valid option in Ligue 2 with Hartlepool last season, it’s possible he could also be sent on another loan for this 2022/23 campaign – and the Monkey Hangers are eager again . to register it.
Last season for the fourth tier team, he managed a total of 15 games with three assists. It’s a solid result and considering that only nine of them were also departures, it suggests that even more Ligue 2 action this season could lead to even more goal contributions from the player.
White could then perhaps benefit from a bit more time out on loan – and with Hartlepool interested in a reunion and Newcastle eyeing a potential loan deal, a transfer before the window closes is certainly possible.
Joe White has proven he is up to the task at League Two level, despite only managing nine starts while on loan at Hartlepool.
It was in those nine starts that he impressed and showed his talent on the fourth tier stage. Rather than having to return to their parent club and then settle for reserve team football, it would be more beneficial for the player to have a chance in even more competitive football.
Hartlepool seem keen to give it back to him, having clearly been impressed with what they saw of the youngster last time out. If they can secure another loan for the player, it could be a real boost for the rest of the campaign.
Surely the best case scenario here would be to send him on another loan as nothing can replicate the same experience you would get from playing competitive football.
