33-year-old, who Newcastle sold, has yet to play a minute in the league since the Toon’s departure”

The goal was to be a regular first-team player when Karl Darlow left Newcastle United this summer.

At St. James’ Park, the 33-year-old was a peripheral player who came in third behind Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka.

On August 24, 2022, Darlow made his Newcastle debut in the Carabao Cup victory over Tranmere Rovers. He wasn’t engaged in the championship game, but he helped the team go to Wembley last season.


This is as a result of his loan to Hull City. Darlow became a member of Liam Rosenior’s team and played in 12 games for the Tigers. The manager called the goalie “outstanding” for his performance on Humberside.

It did not, however, lead to a permanent relocation to Hull. Darlow chose to join with Leeds United instead.


They had been relegated to the Championship, and it looked like Darlow would be the man tasked with keeping net during their bid to return to the Premier League.

But that has not been the case.

Zero league appearances for Karl Darlow since Leeds United move

Darlow has made just two appearances since joining Leeds. Leeds was eliminated from the EFL Cup after losing to Salford City on penalties in the second round. They both participated in the competition.

Darlow has been a bench warmer for the league. He has started all 11 of their Championship games as a substitute, with Illan Meslier returning to the starting lineup following the previous campaign.

Leeds, who are currently fifth in the standings, have had a respectable start to the season, but Darlow had high expectations for the move, and it hasn’t worked out as planned.

Although he is now second choice rather than third at Newcastle, he is still not getting consistent playing time.

It is really unfortunate since Darlow is an excellent goalie who excelled when called upon on Tyneside. During the 2020–21 season, he was especially outstanding while Dubravka was sidelined due to injury and nearly earned a call-up to the England squad.

He has now switched to Elland Road from St. James’ Park. His spot on the bench hasn’t changed, even though the stadium has.
