The 19-year-old goes straight into the squad to face Gloucester tomorrow.

Boss Darren Edmondson, who also expects to land another forward and midfielder next week, said: “JJ is a striker who is highly rated.

“He adds something different to the squad and importantly offers more competition.

“We don’t know how long Jordan Connerton will be missing for, so it’s important we have options.

“JJ comes in at a time when we have a packed schedule and will definitely feature.

“We have created chances and not put them away, which needs to change.

“Hopefully JJ can find the back of the net and help us win points over Christmas.

“He’s highly rated. Newcastle think a lot of him and I know he has the quality to come in and make an immediate impact.”
