There are various reports coming through that Rotherham United are very close to getting a loan deal approved with Newcastle for our local striker Adam Armstrong.
It would be great if Adam can take a step up in the leagues after his very successful loan spell at League One club Coventry City last season, when he scored 20 goals in 40 appearances for the Sky Blues.
Adam Armstrong in action for Newcastle in pre-season
Rotherham have been one of the clubs after Adam since it became clear he would be available for loan this season.
Once Daryl Murphy was signed from Ipswich on Saturday then it was certain that Adam would head out on loan, but we will have to wait and see if it’s for a full season or just through January.
Adam will not be allowed to play against Newcastle this season, but Rotherham are not a threat for promotion.
The south Yorkshire club are on 4 points from 4 games and are third bottom of the Championship at the moment.
Last season they finished 4th bottom on 49 points but that was still 9 points clear of relegation and 3rd bottom Charlton Athletic.
Adam hopefully can get a few goals for them this season and help them out.
