Karl Darlow could push to leave Newcastle United in the summer if he does not get any more game time before the end of the season.
That is the view of former Aston Villa and England striker Gabby Agbonlahor, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 30-year-old’s situation at St. James’ Park.
Darlow had been one of Newcastle’s standout performers before he was dropped from the starting XI against Wolves at the end of February.
Speculation before the game suggested he would miss the game and be replaced with Martin Dubravka.
The Times report Darlow was angered by the fact his omission had been leaked ahead of the fixture.
Asked whether Darlow will look to leave Newcastle now he’s proven his worth, Agbonlahor Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Things change.
“Darlow could be back in, in two games time. Dubravka could make some mistakes.
“I’m sure he’ll be happy to be at a club like Newcastle. Things can change dramatically in football, we all know that.
“So I’m sure he’ll wait until the end of the season, see what his game time is and then make a choice.
“He’s a good keeper but he’s not indispensable to the club. If he wanted to leave I’m sure the club would say ‘no problem’.
“It’s not as if it’s Saint-Maximin or one of the top, top players who the club wouldn’t want to lose.”
Darlow kept four clean sheets in 25 Premier League appearances this season.
In Dubravka’s three games between the posts, he has conceded two goals and kept one clean sheet.
