Very promising 18-year-old Adam Campbell has joined Carlisle United for a month’s loan (at least), and could make his debut in Saturday’s home game with Coventry City.
Adam Campbell – top Newcastle youngster sent out on loan
Carlisle play in League One which is England’s third tier of football, and it will be interesting to see if the North Shields youngster can bang in those goals for Carlisle.
Newcastle are short of strikers at the moment, but have still agreed to the short-term move.
The England Under-20 International stands just 5′ 6″ tall, so that’s one inch shorter than the world’s best player – Barcelona’s Lionel Messi – and Adam’s a bundle of energy and has great skills, and the knack of putting the ball into the back of the net.
Adam has played 5 times for the Newcastle first team, and became Newcastle’s youngest ever player in Europe, beating Andy Carroll’s record about a year ago at Atromitos, in the Europa League – it was in fact on August 23rd last year.
Newcastle have very high hopes of Campbell, and we’ll see how he does at Carlisle for a month.
