Newcastle United have 'very high hopes' for this talented midfielder
Young has signed for Tranmere Rovers on a season-long loan ahead of Friday’s domestic transfer deadline – and the 19-year-old could make his debut against Newport County on Saturday.
The Morpeth-born player – who signed a contract extension at Newcastle in the summer – will give the League Two club “something different”, according to manager Mike Jackson.
"We have been watching Jack a lot, and we’re pleased he’s joined the football club,” said Jackson.
“I’d like, to first of all than Newcastle United for allowing us to work with their player, who they have very high hopes for.
"This is Jack's first loan, and he’s so enthusiastic and wants to further develop his game. He’ll provide great competition in midfield, and he provides something different that we don't currently have.
"The signing took quite a while to complete, but it’s important we’re thorough when bringing a new player into the group. He’s a very bubbly character, and he’s here to compete for a place in the team.
"We’ve received a number of excellent reports about Jack. He has lots of energy, he has trained with the first team at Newcastle United, and they think a lot of him. He’s a great addition to the squad.
"He’ll be in contention for this weekend's game at Newport County. He’s also been playing football on a regular basis in recent weeks and months, so he’s ready to go."
