The Sun are reporting today that Adam Armstrong can leave Newcastle permanently this summer.
The transfer fee placed on the head of the 21-year-old is £3M, and Adam becomes the latest local lad who cannot make the grade at his hometown club.
Adam had so much promise just a few years ago especially after finishing his loan spell at Coventry in League One two years ago when he scored 20 goals in 40 total appearances.
But his two subsequent loan spells at Barnsley and Bolton did not go well.
Adam Armstrong – on loan at Blackburn this year
He did go on loan to Blackburn in January, and he scored 9 goals in 21 games for them to be promoted back to the Championship after a single season in League One.
Adam has played for all of the England Youth sides from U16 to U21 level and in total made 54 youth appearances for England with 31 goals which is an impressive record.
There will be clubs interested in the striker, and maybe a move to a League One Club where he seems to excel would be a good move for Adam.
It’s not really a surprise that he has been let go by Rafa Benitez who never seemed to rate the England U21 International.
It’s sad that Adam’s leaving, but that’s life sometimes – things can be difficult.
