Date of birth
A product of the St James’ Park youth system, Tom Heardman will spend the 2017-18 season as a Shaker after joining the club on a season long loan.
21-year-old Tom has been close the Toon Army’s first team but injury forced the youngster to drop down in then manager Steve McLaren’s plans. Since returning from injury, and spending time on loan at Hartlepool United, Tom has done enough to impress Rafa Benitez to such an extent that he was rewarded with a new deal towards the end of last season.
Standing at six feet four inches tall, Tom joins the Shakers in search of league experience as he looks to progress in search of first team football at St James’ Park.
