Newcastle United’s Swedish U21 international goalkeeper Ole Soderburg has joined Chesterfield FC on one month’s emergency loan.
Soderburg will be with the Spireites until Saturday, December 10.
The 21-year-old signed for the Magpies from Swedish club BK Haken in January, 2008, and although making the substitutes bench for the Premiership side, he is still to make his first-team debut.
He made his Sweden U21 debut in February in the game against Portugal, having previously represented his country at various age-groups.
It is not known if Soderburg will go straight into the first-team, or be included on the bench, for this weekend’s home game against League One’s bottom club Yeovil Town.
No 1 choice Tommy Lee has been sidelined for six weeks with a groin injury and is not expected to be ready to return to action for another two weeks.
Lee became injured during the 1-0 victory over Bury on September 13 when he was replaced by Greg Fleming.
Chesterfield won the match 1-0 but since then, the Spireites have played a further nine games and registered two wins, a draw and six League One defeats.
