Burton Albion fans in The Transfer Tavern are excited at the prospect of the club signing a highly rated Premier League striker on loan.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the League One side are interested in signing Ivan Toney on loan before the loan window closes later this month.
Toney joined Newcastle United from Northampton Town during the summer transfer window and has made three substitute appearances for the club so far this season.
The 21-year-old has hit the ground running since moving to St James Park, and only last month was awarded the Barclays Under 21 player of the month award.
Newcastle are believed to be ready to let the youngster leave and get some vital competitive game time in the lower leagues, something Toney is not unfamiliar with the rigours of lower league football having making 53 appearances over his three years at Northampton Town.
It is also reported that Burton will face competition from Wolverhampton Wanderers for the talented youngsters services.
The Burton Albion fans in The Transfer Tavern are delighted to be linked with a move for the youngster as he is someone who impressed when he came up against them in League Two with former club Northampton Town.
