Adam Campbell could make his debut for Carlisle against Coventry on Saturday

The 18-year-old, who can play up front or on the wing, is expected to go straight into manager Greg Abbott's squad for Saturday's home game against Coventry.

"Adam is a good young player who has been right on the fringes of the Newcastle United first team," Abbott told the club's official website.

"I spoke with Alan (Pardew) about him and he thinks a heck of a lot of him. He's at a stage of the season where he wants Adam to get more football and he knows that we look after players like this.

"We have a really good relationship with Newcastle and Alan knows that we are after numbers to help our squad at the moment.

"Hopefully this is one of those that will work out for all parties because there is no doubt that we are getting a good player who has a bright future ahead of him."

Campbell, who has represented England at Under 16 and 17 level, made his senior debut for Newcastle in the Europa League fourth qualifying round tie at Atrmitos in August 2012 and has made three Barclays Premier League appearances.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
