Newcastle recall Dan Barlaser from frustrating Crewe loan

Newcastle United have recalled Dan Barlaser from his loan at Crewe Alexandra.

Crewe boss David Artell did not start Barlaser once in League Two and afforded him just 58 minutes of game-time via substitute appearances.

Upon the midfielder's departure, Artell reasoned: “I spoke to Dan and to Newcastle and explained that those ahead of him in the team didn't deserve to not be playing.

“Dan said he wasn't playing enough and I had to agree with him.

“It was just a question of those lads ahead of him doing well.

“Dan had done well but not well enough to get past Callum Ainley and Charlie Kirk.

“He played some Under-23 games for us and when I spoke to Newcastle about the situation, they thought it was better for him to return there and play Under-23 football for them.

“That was fine and it was all amicable.

“We all wish him well."
