Tranmere have completed the signing of Ryan Donaldson on a one-month loan deal from Newcastle.

The 20-year old, who can play in midfield or attack, has progressed through the youth ranks at St James' Park after joining the Magpies at the age of 10.

"I'm really pleased to be able to bring Ryan to the club, said Rovers boss Les Parry. "He's a talented young player who I've watched a lot for Newcastle's reserves and last season for Hartlepool and he's always impressed me."

He added: "He's good on the ball and has an eye for goal and he'll be an excellent addition to our squad. I'd like to thank Newcastle manager Alan Pardew for allowing Ryan to join us."

Donaldson made his first-team debut for Newcastle in August 2009 and has made six appearances for his hometown club.

He spent two months on loan in League One last season at Hartlepool, where he played 12 times.

Donaldson will be available for Tranmere's home game against Wycombe on Saturday.
