It's official...now he will start in their U-23 team and perhaps get a few cup games

Interesting article (some of it seems a bit sensational though). Chelsea did apparently offer a four year extension but he turned it down.

He also seems committed to playing for our U-23's

Getting bogged down at the talent hoarding Chelsea was good and bad for young Kyle. He was always played with super talented players and was viewed as the guy who could hold it together and make the team work. It will be interesting to see if he can adjust to playing an inferior team with inferior players. Do the right thing Yedlin and take him under your wing.

Isn't Scott starting with the U23 side?

Yes. But I'm sure if he shows well they didn't sign him to that contract to be a bench bum. Mike Ashley is cheap

Well the fans at Telstar seemed to like him, but he probably got frustrated playing at that level and called time on the loan.

He is still only 21. I think he signed a two year deal which may have been smart on his part as it allows him to have a little security while not getting bogged down in case it isn't working out. Plenty of time for him to breakthrough or break free.

I expect he will get PL minutes by Christmas if he is healthy, but I do not think playing for Steve Bruce will necessarily suit him.

Still, being a U-23 at Newcastle does afford the possibility of him joining up with our U-23 team for olympic qualifying.

I don't expect Scott to be a U-23 player for long at Newcastle. I see this more as a precaution as Scott hasn't played any meaningful minutes for close to 8 months. Starting with the reserves gives him a low pressure environment to get into game shape before being added to the Newcastle Sr. Roster.
Therefore don't count on him being released for the U-23 Olympic qualification tournament.

Well the article referenced above seemed to point towards him looking forward to it so he may have negotiated that into his agreement. Who knows.

I fully expect Newcastle to struggle this year and be part of the relegation fight...when was the last time Steve Bruce kept a side up in the EPL? So he may get minutes early but he will have to shine right away to keep being included.
