Sorensen – who was recalled from a loan spell at Blackpool last season because of a lack of starts – is waiting to find out the identity of the club’s next manager following the sacking of Steven Pressley.

The 20-year-old posted a photograph of himself playing for Carlisle said on Instagram with the caption: “He that can have patience can have what he will.”

Sorensen, a Denmark Under-21 international, made his senior Newcastle debut in a Premier League Asia Trophy game against Wolverhampton Wanderers in July. He signed a new three-year deal at United in January before he moved to Blackpool on loan after hitting form for the club’s Under-23 side.
