Gateshead have signed versatile forward Jake Fowler from Championship side Middlesbrough on a one-month loan.

The 19-year-old, who can play in attack or in wide positions, is yet to make his first-team bow for the Teessiders but signed a professional deal in 2011.

Sunderland-born Fowler has represented England at under-16 and under-17 level, and was part of the Nordic Cup-winning side of 2009.

He goes into the Tynesiders squad for Saturday's trip to Alfreton Town.
