Newcastle's teenage Cumbrian midfielder Joe White is set to sign a new deal and could go out on loan, according to reports.

The Carlisle prospect has been eyed by a number of top clubs amid his promising progress at St James' Park.

But the 19-year-old is now poised to commit his future to the north east club, according to the Daily Mail and Shields Gazette.

And White is also being linked with a loan move to Carlisle United's League Two rivals Hartlepool United in a bid for first-team experience.

England youth international White has been on the fringes of the Toon first-team this season.

He is thought to have been monitored by clubs such as Chelsea, Rangers and Celtic.

Manager Eddie Howe recently said he had been "very impressed" with the young Cumbrian.

"I saw him playing for the development squad recently, and he performed really well - he's a talented player," Howe said last month.

White has been on the bench for a number of first-team games this season, having come through Newcastle's academy since 2016.

The son of Jamie and Fiona and the grandson of the late former Workington Reds manager and Carlisle United player, coach and physio Peter Hampton, White was previously on the Blues' books.
