St Mirren boss Danny Lennon is poised to complete a loan deal for Newcastle midfielder Conor Newton today. The 21-year-old will join fellow Newcastle player Paul Dummett at St Mirren Park in time for the visit of Kilmarnock on Wednesday.
Lennon said: "Conor Newton's deal will be done today, subject to a medical.
"He is hungry, he has got a fantastic education down at Newcastle, has a very good pedigree. He can play anywhere across the midfield and can fit in at right-back also.
"He's got lovely feet, a good passer of the ball and a bright type. He has fantastic legs and if he has that appetite with the way we play and develop players at this football club, we will certainly improve him.
