The Newcastle United midfielder spent last season on loan at Accrington Stanley. And the 22-year-old – who has made three senior appearances for United and was at Crewe Alexandra the season before last – will spend this season at League One side Rotherham.

Barlaser signed for the club after agreeing a new deal at St James’s Park.

"There was interest from Championship and other League One clubs,” said Barlaser. "I thought the way they went about to try and get me was brilliant. The interest itself was massive – they really tried to get me in. The facilities and the way the gaffer wants to play was a factor in me coming here.”

Meanwhile, Newcastle appointed former striker Shola Ameobi was a loan co-ordinator last month to ensure players are loaned to the right clubs at the right time.
