Sky Sports – Fee and personal terms now agreed as NUFC cash in on top youngster

As confirmed by Sky Sports’ Keith Downie, Blackburn have now agreed a fee of £1.75m rising to £3m with Newcastle to sign England U-21 striker  Adam Armstrong on a permanent deal.

This was reported by The Sun earlier today, however Sky have now revealed some of the details behind the deals – also confirming that the striker has already agreed personal terms with the newly promoted Championship side.

Here’s what Keith Downie has had to say on the deal in the last few moments:

Some will feel like this is a big mistake – especially for what seems like such a small fee in this day and age – however this may well be the best for all parties.

That being said, it’s only a wise move on our part IF Benitez now gets the money to spend from this seemingly imminent sale – as The Chronicle’s Mark Douglas alludes to hear.

Good luck Arma!

  1. I think selling Armstrong is a massive mistake considering we lack strikers ad especially for such a measly price I have a feeling this might come back and haunt us ..


  2. I am not sure how many Newcastle United supporters believe that Rafa Benitez is behind this transfer. Another act of sabotage by MA to try a drive a wedge between an honest man who will not be bought and his adoring fan base. The only problem here is that the club is being run as a business, solely for the profit of an already very rich man. The opposition, a manager who has felt an affinity with the Newcastle people, and a man who is a winner, who knows what it takes to give those adoring fans the success we so rightly deserve. We have a choice, act like lemmings and give the fat controller all our hard earned money, or protest and get rid. If you close your eyes and cover your ears, there is no future.
