Newton joins fellow Magpies player Paul Dummett at St Mirren Park.

Saints manager Danny Lennon said: "He is hungry, he has got a fantastic education down at Newcastle, has a very good pedigree. He can play anywhere across the midfield and can fit in at right-back also.

"He's got lovely feet, a good passer of the ball and a bright type. He has fantastic legs and if he has that appetite with the way we play and develop players at this football club, we will certainly improve him.

"And if all parties, St Mirren, Conor Newton and Newcastle United gain something out of that, then everybody's a winner."
