Like his 19 year-old Newcastle and England U-19 team-mate before him – Freddie Woodman – 19 year-old Adam Armstrong has just signed a new four year deal.

Adam is expected to go out on loan this season, maybe even to another Championship club to get the playing time he needs to develop his skills.

Adam Armstrong signs new four year deal

Here’s what Newcastle put up on their web-site tonight:

Teenage striker Adam Armstrong has signed a new four-year contract at St. James’ Park.

The 19-year-old, who scored 20 goals while on loan at Coventry City last season, was called up for England’s under-20 squad on Thursday ahead of their friendly against Brazil next month.

And in the evening, he put pen to paper on a deal which will keep him with his boyhood Club until 2020.

Armstrong made his Premier League debut as a 17-year-old against Fulham in March 2014.

This is what Adam said after signing:

“I’m over the moon.” “I’ve been working hard on the training pitch and I did well last season, so to get the reward is massive for me and I think it’s the next step.”

“I went on loan last season and for me to come back here and extend my contract is brilliant for me and for my family.”

“I’ll keep working hard every day and progress.”

Big things are expected of local lad Adam Armstrong at Newcastle and he seems to be handling things well after a great season at Coventry last term.

Comments welcome.

    are you having a laugh, why the hell would he go out on loan this season, as we are already far to short on strikers, they should be signing more strikers, not sending what little strikers they have out on loan, but nothing surprises me anymore at Newcastle.

    Great signing Rafa is doing the business. Signing up top youngsters on long deals getting rid of overpaid rubbish that got us relegated and signing hungry talented players with championship experience

    Can’t understand why this lad hasn’t been given a chance? Always looks sharp, scores goals for fun and is a Geordie? Tomorrow he has his chance so it’s down to him but I predict he’ll grab the opportunity with both hands.
