‘Might be playing sooner than you thought’ – Many fans react as Newcastle Utd prospect secures L2 loan switch

Tranmere Rovers have agreed a loan deal for Newcastle United midfielder Jack Young, as revealed by the club’s official website.

The 19-year-old who was compared to Lewis Cook by former Newcastle under-23 boss Neil Redfearn, and is highly-rated at St James’ Park. The next stage of his development is a loan spell in senior football, with Mike Jackson has proven keen to add the 19-year-old to his ranks.

“We have been watching Jack a lot and we are pleased he has joined the football club,” Jackson told the club’s official website.
“I would like to first of all thanks 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 is so enthusiastic and wants to further develop his game. He will provide great competition in midfield, and he provides something different that we don’t currently have.”
Young, who turns 20 next week, joined Newcastle at the age of seven, and made his debut for Newcastle’s under-23s in January 2019, with his first goal coming against Middlesbrough. He was also named on the bench against mAnchester City for the senior side last year.
He joins a Tranmere side currently 14th in League Two, with six points from five matches. Fans have been quick to welcome him to Prenton Park, with his signing a refreshing distraction from the Covid-19 situation engulfing the club of late.
