Sources: Newcastle midfielder unlikely to play for club again after talks
Newcastle United midfielder Daniel Barlaser is unlikely to play for the club again after new talks, Football Insider can reveal.
The north-east giants have told Rotherham that Barlaser’s loan can be extended for the rest of the League One season beyond its current 30 June expiry date.
A Newcastle source has told Football Insider that the Yorkshire-based promotion hopefuls have already had an indication the 23-year-old can return on loan again next season.
It is regarded as unlikely that League One and League Two will resume this season, with a final decision set to be made by the EFL as early as tomorrow.
Nevertheless, Barlaser is not expected to play for his parent club again, or be in the reckoning for a senior role.
The central midfielder has spent the last two seasons on loan at, first, Accrington and then Rotherham.

Notwithstanding the prospective imminent takeover backed by the vast wealth of Saudi Arabia, Barlaser is well down the pecking order at Newcastle.
His contract has another year to run, until the summer of 2021.
He penned his first professional contract with the north-east giants in February 2015, and then extended his terms two years.
Gateshead-born Barlaser, who has represented England and Turkey at youth international level, has made only two Newcastle appearances, both in the FA Cup.
By contrast, he has been a mainstay for second-placed Rotherham and has made 24 league starts among 35 appearances this season.
