The Evening Chronicle claim Newcastle United are reportedly willing to allow Jamie Sterry, Tom Heardman and Cal Roberts to leave the club on loan this month, with the latter interesting League One side Blackpool.

The Toon are yet to make any signings of their own this month as Rafa Benitez continues to be frustrated by his lack of spending power at St. James' Park, with Mike Ashley still in control of the club.

The impending takeover of Amanda Staveley's PCP Capital Partners is yet to go through, with Benitez in the dark over the amount of money he has to spend during the January transfer window.

But in terms of outgoings, it seems the Toon are willing to allow their younger players to leave and develop their potential, with Sterry, Heardman and Roberts way down the pecking order on Tyneside.

Sterry, 22, has made three senior appearances for the club but he remains behind the likes of DeAndre Yedlin, Javier Manquillo and Jesus Gamez in the right-back pecking order, while Heardman is yet to make his debut for the club.

Roberts, a two-time England Under-20 international, was loaned to Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock last season and made a decent impression during his 11 appearances and could now join Blackpool this month.

However, the Toon will only allow Roberts to leave if they are given assurances that Roberts will play regularly for the Tangerines. The winger is yet to build on his Toon debut back in March 2015, despite scoring three goals in five Under-23 appearances this season.
