Darlington boss Dave Hodgson is hopeful of bringing fresh faces to the club.Darlington boss Dave Hodgson is waiting on Newcastle chief Graeme Souness to find out whether he has landed Lewis Guy.
The Quakers are hoping to tie up a loan-deal until the end of the season, with Hodgson looking to cement a play-off berth.
Hodgson is hopeful that Souness will allow the promising 19-year-old to leave St James' Park on a loan basis - and is expecting some kind of confirmation in the not too distant future.
''I've made an approach for Lewis but I'm still waiting for Graeme Souness to get back to me,'' said Hodgson.
''It has been frustrating that nothing has moved forward since last week, although we are hopeful that might happen before the weekend.''
Meanwhile, it is expected that The Quakers will complete permanent deals for Sunderland's Jonjo Dickman and Matty Appleby of Oldham in the next few days.
