Jamaal Lascelles (born 11 November 1993) is an English professional footballer who plays as a defender for Nottingham Forest on loan from Newcastle United.

Club career[edit]

Nottingham Forest[edit]

Lascelles began his career at Nottingham Forest, progressing through the club's youth system.[3] In January 2011, the club rejected a £5 million offer from Arsenal for him.[3][4][5] He signed his first professional contract in March 2011.[6] Lascelles made his professional debut on 31 January 2012, starting in a 2–0 defeat to Burnley.[7]

Loan to Stevenage[edit]

In March 2012, Lascelles joined League One side Stevenage, on loan until the end of the 2011–12 season.[8][9] He made his debut for Stevenage on 13 March 2012, coming on as a 69th-minute substitute in a 1–0 home win over Oldham Athletic, playing in the right-back position.[10] He made his first starting appearance in Stevenage's 6–0 away victory at Yeovil Town on 14 April 2012, scoring the club's fourth goal with a header from Luke Freeman's cross.[11] Lascelles also provided the assist for Patrick Agyemang's goal in the same game.[12] He remained as a first-team regular from then onwards, playing the remaining four games of the regular season as Stevenage secured a League One play-off spot.[13] Lascelles also played in both play-off matches, as Stevenage lost 1–0 on aggregate to Sheffield United.[14][15] He made nine appearances during his two-month loan spell, scoring once.[16]

Return to Nottingham Forest[edit]

On 7 August 2012, Lascelles signed a new four-year contract with Nottingham Forest.[17] He made a total of three appearances in all competitions in the 2012–13 season.[18]

Lascelles broke into the starting line-up in the 2013–14 season,[19] forming a central defensive partnership with Jack Hobbs[20] and making a total of 29 league appearances.[21] On 22 January 2014, Everton were fined £45,000 by the FA over an "unauthorised approach" to Lascelles in 2010 while he was still a youth player at Nottingham Forest. Lascelles was warned as to his future conduct.[22] On 18 March, Lascelles extended his contract in a new four-and-a-half year deal.[23] A reported £4 million bid from Queens Park Rangers was rejected by the club in July.[24][25]

Newcastle United[edit]

On 9 August 2014, Lascelles signed a contract with Premier League club Newcastle United. As part of the deal, he was loaned back to Nottingham Forest for the 2014–15 season.[26][27]

International career[edit]

Lascelles has represented England at all youth international levels from under-18 to under-21.[28]

On 28 May 2013, he was named in manager Peter Taylor's 21-man squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[29] He made his debut on 16 June, in a 3–0 win in a warm-up game against Uruguay.[30]

On 27 February 2014, Lascelles received his first under-21 call-up for the 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying match against Wales.[31][32] He made his debut starting in the qualifying match against Moldova on 9 September 2014.[33]
