Newcastle winger Shane Ferguson is set to seal a permanent move to Millwall later this week, sources have told

Ferguson’s loan move at Millwall expired at the weekend following the win over Chesterfield after he initially joined the Lions in August.

The 24-year-old is due to return to Newcastle this week, but the midfielder is well down the pecking order at St James’ Park and Steve McClaren is ready to let Ferguson move on.

Ferguson is out of contract at Newcastle at the end of the season and both parties are in talks to enable him to move on to a new club.

Ferguson, who made 28 appearances during his loan at Millwall, is keen to be playing regular first-team football so that he can enhance his chances of keeping his place in the Northern Ireland squad for this summer’s Euro 2016 finals

Ferguson has impressed at Millwall during his loan stint and Lions boss Neil Harris has been keen to keep hold of the player as he look to maintain his side’s hopes of promotion from League One.
