Newcastle United talent Tom Allan is the second player from the English Premier League club to arrive at Scottish Championship club Greenock Morton this season.
The 21-year-old heads to Cappielow alongside teammate Oisin McEntee, who has also penned a season-long loan deal at the end of the transfer window. Both are rated highly by Newcastle United but it has been decided that they need regular first-team experience. Morton manager Gus MacPherson has opted to give them that.
His side have started the season with one win, one draw, and two defeats as they sit sixth in the Championship. Morton’s next match comes against Celtic B in the SPFL Trust Trophy before a Championship trip to Kilmarnock.
A statement on the arrival on winger Allan reads: “Manager Gus MacPherson has tonight bolstered his squad even further by signing winger Tom Allan on a season long loan from Newcastle United, subject to international clearance.
“The 21-year-old joins fellow Magpie Oisin McEntee as the second loanee to arrive from Tyneside today and the third signing in total to join the Ton on deadline day with Jaakko Oksanen being announced earlier. Ton boss MacPherson has put on record his gratitude towards Newcastle for entrusting the club for their players development.”
