Loan deal for Southampton goalkeeper Kingsley Latham

We are delighted to confirm that Kingsley Latham has joined The Magpies on loan from Southampton until January 2019.

The 19-year-old goalkeeper signed for the Premier League side from Yeovil Town early last year having started his career at Torquay United.

Kingsley, who put pen to paper on a new one-year contract with The Saints earlier in the summer, made his first appearance for Steve Thompson’s side in our recent friendly against Plymouth Argyle at The Avenue Stadium.

Welcome Kingsley!
