United Striker Out With Knee Problem
Then on Monday the seventeen year old was spotted hobbling around while watching Newcastle reserves take on Manchester United.
Today though Alan Pardew has confirmed that Campbell is out with a knee problem but the good news is he doesn’t need an operation.

“I think it’s going to be a while yet, the physios are being cautious about it and rightly so. He’s going to be a special player if he progresses like we hope”.
A real shame for the North Shields youngster because he would have had a great chance of getting more minutes on the pitch in our upcoming Europa League matches, while I wouldn’t even have minded having him as a bit of a wildcard to have on the bench for our Premier League matches when he might offer something different for ten or fifteen minutes.
