Newcastle United to decide the future of striker who scored 20 goals last season

Newcastle United are currently deciding what to do with Adam Armstrong this summer, according to reports from the Chronicle.

Armstrong is arguably one of the most talented young players present in the Newcastle United squad at the moment and the striker managed to prove his worth last season, scoring an impressive 20 goals in League One while on loan at Coventry City.

Given his wonderful exploits last term, it was widely believed that Armstrong would be challenging for a place in the Newcastle first team during the upcoming Championship campaign but circumstances have changed dramatically over the past few days.

Newcastle splashed around £10 million to secure the services of Dwight Gayle from Crystal Palace recently and in addition, the likes of Aleksandar Mitrovic and Papiss Cisse are also likely to stay put at St. James’ Park.

As a result, Armstrong’s chances of earning regular first team football during the upcoming campaign looks bleak at the moment and the Newcastle hierarchy are believed to be currently pondering over the future of the 19-year-old, according to reports from the Chronicle.
