York City are set to sign defender Kyle Cameron on a one month loan deal from Newcastle United.
The 18 year old Hexham born defender can play at both centre half and left back and will replace defensive loanees Will Boyle and Mark Kitching who returned to their parent clubs last week following short loan spells at Bootham Crescent.
Cameron is one of a number of young trialists who were invited to train with York City in the past week and has impressed City Manager Jackie McNamara enough to earn a short term loan deal which could be extended until the end of the season should the defender impress in North Yorkshire.
The youngster has previously spent time on loan at Evostik Premier Division outfit Workington and impressed The Reds’ Manager Derek Townsley with the impact which he made at the Cumbrian club after scoring on his debut in a 2-1 victory at Marine.
Cameron first joined Newcastle United as a 9 year old and has progressed through the academy set up at St James’ Park. He has been a regular starter in The Magpies’ Under 18s side and has represented England at Under 16 and Under 17 levels but has since opted to represent Scotland on the international stage.
