‘Wanderers are pleased to announce the second of two signings made ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline, with Newcastle United midfielder Jack Young arriving at Adams Park on a loan deal for the rest of the season.

Young, 21, follows Middlesbrough midfielder Lewis Wing through the door, having developed through the Magpies’ youth team and earned experience in senior football in the Papa John’s Trophy, as well as a five-game loan spell with Tranmere Rovers earlier this term.

Boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “Jack has been recommended to us as a young lad worth taking a look at and he’ll give us extra depth in midfield between now and the end of the season.

“Newcastle and ourselves believe that he’ll benefit around a first-team environment and we’re looking forward to working with him to develop his game.”

Meanwhile, Connor Parsons has returned to Adams Park following a loan spell with Notts County, where he played twice.’

Newcastle United official announcement – 1 February 2022:

‘Young midfielder Jack Young has joined League One promotion-chasers Wycombe Wanderers on loan.

The 21-year-old, who has been with United since the age of seven, spent the first half of last season on loan with Tranmere Rovers and will now stay with Buckinghamshire-based Wycombe for the remainder of the current campaign.

He has regularly captained the Magpies at under-23 level and has been named on the bench on a handful of occasions at first-team level, although he has yet to make his competitive bow for the club.

However, Young did play for United at senior level in a pre-season friendly at Doncaster Rovers in July and joins a Chairboys side currently fifth in their division.’
