First team manager Chris Kiwomya has made his second loan signing of the day with the recruitment of exciting Aston Villa prospect Jack Grealish.
Grealish is a highly-rated winger who has been on the verge of the Premier League outfit’s first team for the past two years.
The 18-year-old has appeared on the bench for Villa and has already demonstrated his potential for their youth, reserves and NextGen Series sides.
Grealish will give Kiwomya more attacking options ahead of this weekend’s trip to MK Dons, where the Magpies will aim to gain their first three points of the campaign.
The Birmingham-born Republic of Ireland Under-21 international is the second player to arrive from Villa Park this term behind left-back Enda Stevens.
Look out for the first interview with the club’s latest arrival on Magpie Player.
