Jack Young has left Newcastle United to join League One side Wycombe Wanderers on a permanent basis.

The 21-year-old joined the Magpies academy aged seven before progressing through the ranks to land his first professional contract in 2019.

Young, having regularly captained the under-23s, played for the first-team during pre-season in friendlies at Doncaster Rovers, Rotherham United, Burton Albion and Burnley.

The Morpeth-born central midfielder was loaned to Wycombe in January and has now completed a permanent switch, despite making just two appearances for the Chairboys so far.

Young, in his short time at Adams Park, has impressed manager Gareth Ainsworth and put pen to paper on a three-year contract.

“Jack’s really impressed us since the day he arrived,” Ainsworth said. “We’re delighted to have him on board on a permanent basis.

“He was brought to our attention by our recruitment team earlier in the season and we were really pleased to have the chance to take a look at him during his loan deal.

“Every time he’s gone out there to train or play in matches, he’s given 100% and showed real quality, so it’s fantastic to have him here for the next three years and we’re looking forward to helping him unlock more of his potential.”

In the statement released by the club, Newcastle wished Young, a boyhood Toon fan, well for the future.
