Shane Ferguson could well be leaving Newcastle today,k as Milwall manager Neil Harris is keen to sign the Northern Ireland U21 international, who seems to have no future at Newcastle.
Shane has had two loan spells while at Newcastle, principally to Birmingham City, where he went on loan twice and then this year at Glasgow Rangers, although he was injured most of the time.

The 24-year-old is a versatile player and can play in almost any position on the left side of the field including left back and left wing, and he even played center-back on Newcastle’s American tour this summer.
Milwall boss Neil Harris said in last night’s fans forum meeting at The Den that he wanted to sign a left-winger today – and that could well be Shane Ferguson.
That player will play in place of the injured Joe Martin in tomorrow’s opening game of the season at Shrewsbury.
Shane has spent eight years on Tyneside, and at one time he looked a very promising player at left back, when Alan Pardew played him in the first team in April of 2011, when he looked very good at left back.
But in his loan spells at Birmingham City he didn’t come through as well as had been hoped, and he is now looking for a new club to reignite his career.
Shane played 32 times for the Newcastle first team and has played 18 times for Northern Ireland.
Note: Two brothers Phil and Richard Milbourne are on a mission to cycle to all 92 Premier and Football League grounds in England and Wales during four weeks in July and August 2015.
They will be in Newcastle today – so see if you can help out a very good cause – you can read about their exploits and denote on their website pedalforpounds here.
