A number of Newcastle youngsters need to go out on loan and play first team games, in order that they can improve quickly, and then they can come back as better players and challenge for a first team spot at Newcastle. That seems a good scenario to get Newcastle youngsters developing quickly.
Adam Campbell – on loan in January
The Newcastle Journal is reporting today that St Mirren are getting close to a deal to take 18 year-old local striker Adam Campbell on loan in January.
Paul Dummett and Conor Newton both went on loan last season to the Scottish Premier League club, and both did great, and that earned Paul a six-year deal at his local club.
And Conor Newton is back north of the border on loan at St. Mirren again this season.
Spencer Downey is an agent working on the move for Campbell, and he had this to say in the Journal today:
“We’re hoping to have that one tied up for January 1 and get Adam up there for the match with Kilmarnock the day after,” “Newcastle value what St Mirren have done for Paul and Conor, and believe sending Adam up there would be good for him.”
A loan spell will do Adam a lot of good, and we’d also like to see local lads Remie Streete and maybe even Adam Armstrong also sent out on loan next month.
The Newcastle youngsters need to get first team experience somewhere else, because they will not get first team experience at Newcastle at the moment, with the competition for places being so intense.
