Newcastle United defender Kyle Cameron has agreed terms to sign for Queen of the South on loan until the end of the season, it has been confirmed.
The Magpies announced on their official Twitter account on Thursday that Cameron, 21, has finalised his temporary exit from St James’ Park and will join up with the fifth-placed Scottish Championship side until the end of the season.

Cameron has never made an appearance for the Newcastle first-team but has been ever-present in the Under-23s side this season.
He has made 12 appearances across Premier League 2 and the EFL Cup, mostly playing at left-back even though he is traditionally a centre-back.
The 6ft 3in defensive colossus is now due to join Queen of the South, who sit mid-table in the Scottish Championship.
Cameron’s first game for them could come against Partick in the Scottish Cup on Saturday.
Football Insider verdict
Cameron seems like one of them many young players at Newcastle who will never really get much of a chance in the first-team. This loan deal is probably just to make sure his development doesn’t stall after previous stints at York and Newport County where he got a decent number of minutes under his belt. A permanent move to Scotland may be something Cameron would consider in the future. He has left the England youth international set-up to join Scotland’s and has already made three appearances for their Under-21s side.
