Alan Pardew has actually talked about some potentially pending good news at Newcastle, and he said earlier in the week that some of the players who have done well at the club will be given new contracts.
Adam Armstrong – top youngster to get new deal?
Of course we’d love to think he’s talking about Loic Remy, but that’s unlikely to happen, especially when Remy has recently said he wants to join a top five club.]
But it’s a lot more likely that Newcastle will be giving some new long term contracts to some of our younger players.
These are the comments Alan made at the FA Youth Cup quarter-final against Chelsea earlier in the week:
“Well we hope to announce another bit of good news out of that situation in the next couple of weeks, because some of those players have done very well for us, and we’ll be looking to secure their futures.”
“It was a fantastic game and anybody who was there would have seen that we gave a very very good account of ourselves, against a top top youth team.”
Local lad Adan Armstrong looks like a really top prospect at Newcastle, so maybe he will get a new contract – and that’s especially true now he has just turned 17, when you can sign a professional contract.
There are other younger players too who could get new deals – and while it’s the youngsters – it’s still good to tie down some players who hopefully will become first team players in a couple of years.
