Newcastle United set to sign Manchester United starlet Tom Cleverley on loan - report

Newcastle United are reportedly poised to sign Manchester United starlet Tom Cleverley on a season-long loan deal.

The 20-year-old has recently signed a new three-year contract at Old Trafford but Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to give the midfielder more first-team experience, this time in the Premier League, according to The Mirror.

The England under-21 international has yet to make his first-team debut for United, but is set to be picked up by Toon boss Chris Hughton, who recently added James Perch to his ranks from Nottingham Forest as he looks to bolster his squad on a limited budget.

Cleverley spent last season on loan in the Championship with Watford, where he won the club’s player of the year award despite picking up a knee ligament injury in April which ruled him out for the remainder for the campaign.
