Newcastle United striker Adam Armstrong says he is 100% committed to…Coventry City, at least for the next four or five months.
Thursday saw confirmation at last that the 18 year old was going to get the chance to add to his 16 goals at Coventry and finish off the season at the Midlands club.
Armstrong says that despite the rumours of him potentially going to a different club, maybe a step up in the Championship, or even returning to Newcastle for the rest of the season – he always wanted to stay at Coventry City for the full year.
With 16 goals in 22 starts (plus 1 as a sub) already, Coventry boss Tony Mowbray thinks the Geordie striker has got over 20 goals in him.
With 20 matches still left (plus potential play-offs) it will be interesting to see just what total Adam Armstrong can get to – though whatever he ends up with, it will still have been a spectacular introduction to regular first team football.
Mowbray also thanked Newcastle United for having ‘faith’ in Coventry City as a club to look after Adam Armstrong’s progress.
“I am over the moon and 100 per cent committed to this club.
“There have been a lot of rumours but I wanted to stay here.
“We have got some really good young players here and nice mix of experience too.
“The gaffer has been massive for me and I wouldn’t be where I am in my career without his help this season.”
“It is something that’s been on the agenda for a few weeks and we’re just delighted that it’s done and we have got 20 more league games to go and let’s hope he’s got plenty more goals in those boots.
“I would also like to put on record my thanks to Newcastle for having faith in this club.
“We have to continue to create opportunities for him. I think he’s got more than 20 goals in him this season.”
