Highly rated young Newcastle striker Adam Armstrong is set at last to make a loan move to bring him much needed regular football, according to the Coventry Telegraph.

Coventry City are expecting to finalise the paperwork in time for the forward to make his debut for the League One outfit tonight when  they face Cambridge United in a friendly.

The newspaper describes the impending loan as ‘long-term’ which presumably will be for the full season.

Armstrong was set to go out last season for some needed time on the pitch but any ideas of a loan deal had to be put on hold, due to Newcastle’s small squad and the lack of striking options, with Cisse injury-plagued, Riviere hopeless and Ferreyra never seen.

Whilst Adam Armstrong has struggled for matches with Newcastle United, in contrast he has been outstanding for his country as he has moved up the ranks.

At England Under 17 level the Geordie striker hit 10 in 12 matches and then has followed that up with nine in nine for the Under 18s.

Whilst he was given three starts in the cups last season as Newcastle played weakened teams yet again, Adam Armstrong was really thrown in at the deep end when he made his first Premier League starting 11 at Old Trafford in the 3-1 defeat on Boxing Day.

Good luck to the Geordie striker full of potential and hopefully he will tear League One up now he looks to be getting his chance.
