TRANMERE have been linked with a loan move for Newcastle United versatile midfielder/defender Conor Newton.
The 21-year-old – who is available for loan – was checked out by a posse of scouts during Newcastle ‘s reserve-team game against Manchester United this week.
The flame-haired youngster says he is keen to build up his first-team experience after putting in some encouraging displays in the Professional Development League.
He said: “I am keen to gain first-team experience and hopefully that can be soon. You can only go so far in the reserves and it is good to play against more senior players to test yourself.”
The loan window shuts on November 24 for Football League clubs seeking Premier League players.
