Newcastle United striker Nile Ranger has joined Sheffield Wednesday on loan until the end of the season.
The 20-year-old signed for the Magpies in 2008 and has made 58 appearances for the club, but has fallen out of favour in recent months.
The player has also made more headlines off the field recently, after making several court appearances.
It's the second time the 6ft 2in has been loaned out this season after the player had a stint with Championship side Barnsley at the end of last year.
This latest move is now a further indication that Ranger's days at St James' Park are numbered.
The forward is now in contention for Wednesday's League One trip to Leyton Orient tomorrow.
