Newton's Back With Buddies

Written by Newcastle Utd

The Club can confirm that Conor Newton has rejoined St. Mirren on loan after a hugely successful spell in Scotland last term

By Dan King - Newcastle United Digital Editor

Last season's Scottish League Cup final hero has rejoined St. Mirren on loan from Newcastle, the Magpies can confirm.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who scored the winner as the Buddies beat Hearts 3-2 at Hampden Park last term, drove to Paisley on Tuesday morning before signing a loan deal which will keep him at St. Mirren Park until at least January 2014.

He joined Danny Lennon's side last January and received a magnificent reception when he figured for the Magpies in last week's pre-season friendly against the Saints. After that game, Alan Pardew told nufcTV that Newton might return to the club for a second loan spell.

Newton will wear squad number 24 with the Scottish side, just as he did last season, and told the club's official website: "I am delighted to be back at St. Mirren, a club that holds so many great memories for me.

"I am looking forward to working hard and continuing my development at St. Mirren.

"There was interest from other clubs but I felt that the right move for me at this stage was to come back to St. Mirren and continue where I left off.

"Newcastle United are committed to closely monitoring my development and will be in regular contact with St. Mirren throughout my loan spell and I am looking to do my bit once again for St. Mirren."
