Paul Gascoigne once described young Shane Ferguson as one of the best young prospects to emerge from Newcastle United's Academy for years.

Now fellow Northern Ireland icon Keith Gillespie is praising the 21-year-old.

United have loaned Ferguson out to Birmingham City until April under one of Gillespie’s former team-mates, Lee Clark.

Keith Gillespie: “I’ve seen Shane on a few occasions and he is someone who has really impressed.

“I’m glad to see he has gone on loan because he needs to get regular first-team action to enhance his game.

“So hopefully he can do well and come back and stake a place for a regular first-team spot with Newcastle.”
