NUFC Agree Deal With Scottish Premier Club
Newcastle have agreed a deal with Scottish Premier League side St.Mirren to send their best young talent north of the border, according to reports from Scotland today.
An ‘affiliation’ agreement between the two clubs will mean players will regularly move north to help progress their careers.
Under the arrangement Newcastle will loan players to help St.Mirren, while at the same time give them first team experience at a decent level.
Paul Dummett is of course already on loan at the Scottish premier League club and it is rumoured that United’s young midfielder, Conor Newton could soon join him.
St.Mirren’s manager Danny Lennon said;
“We have an affiliation with the club (Newcastle United) now and it means we can go down and have a look at their squad and see who we like.
The chance to get our hands on some other youngsters from one of the best leagues in the world is great for St.Mirren.
It also gives Newcastle’s youngsters the chance to pick up some valuable experience and play first team football”.
