Rossi loaned to Newcastle until January

Manchester United have loaned Italian youngster Giuseppe Rossi to Newcastle.

The Magpies, stricken by injury to Michael Owen as well as the retirement of Alan Shearer, have borrowed the 19-year-old, who originally hails from New Jersey but has so far chosen to represent the country of his parents.

Newcastle have agreed terms with the Premiership leaders to take Rossi on loan until 1 January 2007.

The Italian striker will link up with the Magpies immediately and, according to Sir Alex Ferguson, will gain some invaluable first team experience.

'It was a big decision for us especially as we don't have the choice of strikers,' admitted the United boss.

'But this is something that Giuseppe wanted as he needs regular first team football.

'When he returns he will be a more experienced player who will be able to offer us much more.'
