Alan Pardew said that if Newcastle couldn’t get another striker through the door before next Monday night – then he would need to recall Adam Campbell from Carlisle United, and add him the strike force at Newcastle.
Adam Campbell – back from short loan spell at Carlisle United
Adam went on loan to Carlisle United only two weeks ago on a month’s loan spell, but has now been recalled by Adam Pardew.
And while it’s true that Carlisle’s Lee Miller has returned from injury, there has been discussions with Alan Pardew and Carlisle officials, and it has been decided to recall the 18 year-old England U20 striker.
Adam joined Carlisle just two weeks ago and made his debut for the League One club as a second half substitute in the home game against Coventry City.
Now it could well be just a coincidence, but it could that Campbell has been returned because things don’t look too bright on the chances bringing in a new striker.
And we suppose Adam could always be sent out on loan again after the transfer window closes, if Newcastle are able to bring in one more top striker in this summer’s transfer window.
But Campbell returning early is at least consistent with Newcastle having problems in bringing in a striker before the transfer window closes.
We hope that’s not the case.
