Skysports.com understands Tranmere are poised to sign Newcastle forward Ryan Donaldson on loan.

Donaldson: Poised to join Tranmere

The 20-year-old forward has progressed through the youth ranks at St James' Park but remains a fair way down the first-team pecking order at present.

He was sent out to Hartlepool for a loan spell last season and now looks set to return to League One to gain further experience.

A deal is expected to be announced soon and the Magpies will hope that playing regularly for Tranmere will accelerate Donaldson's development.

Tranmere manager Les Parry is looking to bolster his attacking options in the loan window after scoring eight goals in the first eight games of the season.
