Get him on the bench: Newcastle fans react to Elias Sorensen news

Newcastle United fans have been on social media reacting to the news that Elias Sorensen has been nominated for the Premier League 2 Player of the Season award.

And a number have called on head coach Rafael Benitez to hand the centre-forward some first-team minutes against Fulham in the Premier League this weekend.

Sorensen is yet to make his first-team bow for the Magpies, but has scored 20 times this season – including 12 in the Premier League 2.

The 19-year-old actually joined Blackpool on loan during the January transfer window, but made just one league appearance for the club before being recalled.

It will certainly be interesting to see what happens with the Denmark Under-21 international at the end of the season.

But there are some Newcastle fans thinking about the here and now, with a selection hoping to see Sorensen feature away to Fulham on Sunday afternoon in what is a pretty meaningless fixture.
