Newcastle United are ready to send three of their top prospects out on-loan.

United are ready to give the green light to Northern Ireland under-21 international Shane Ferguson, Mehdi Abeid and Haris Vuckic to move to second tier clubs to get more games under their belt.

Toon boss Alan Pardew said: "Haris Vuckic and Mehdi Abeid - there is a good possibility they'll go out. They've done absolutely brilliant and they should be playing. (Shane) Ferguson too.

"Absolutely it'd be Championship, I wouldn't go lower than that."
