Gateshead have signed youngster Andre Bennett on a month-long loan deal from Championship side Middlesbrough

Able to play at full-back or in midfield, Bennett joined Boro as a teenager, signing his first professional contract in 2012.

He has figured regularly for the club’s under-21 side this term, who currently sit ninth in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League Division One.

Gateshead manager Neil Aspin is hopeful Bennett’s versatility will prove a valuable asset for his side in the weeks to come.

He said: “In the games I have seen Andre this season, he has been able to play in a number of positions.

“He is very athletic and comfortable on the ball, and he will give us a couple of options.

“He has been a regular for Middlesbrough’s under-21 side, but he is desperate to go out and play some men’s football.

“So, hopefully the move should suit both parties.”
