Conor Newton: Will see his Newcastle contract expire in the summer

The 21-year-old midfielder will see his current deal at St James' Park expire at the end of the season.

It is unclear where he figures in Newcastle's plans, with it likely that he will be dropped into the free agent pool.

St Mirren would welcome the opportunity to bring him onto their books on a full-time basis, having been impressed by him during a productive loan spell which has included a League Cup triumph.

Lennon said: "He's certainly somebody I'd like to bring here.

"He's had a short period at the club but if things didn't go to plan the way he would wish at Newcastle, then I know that's we would all like."

He added: "The loans have worked well for us this season. While we are growing our own talent, we'll want to continue to bring in guys on loan.

"We have a relationship with both Newcastle and Rio Ave and it's credit to those clubs for having trust in us that we can develop their players.

"We've given them experiences they would never have had with their own clubs and it is a win-win situation for the players and the clubs."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
