The 22-year-old has yet to play in a League Two game this season, but has featured twice in cup competitions.

He could make his debut for the Heed when they travel to face struggling Guiseley on 25 October.

Meanwhile, on-loan Carlisle midfielder Russell Penn, 30, has extended his loan stay with Gateshead until 26 December.
