Is It Time To Unleash Adam Armstrong?

The teenage striker vowed to give everything as he attempts to establish himself at Newcastle United.

He only turns 17 on Monday.

Alan Pardew has promised Armstrong – who has been prolific at Under-18 and Under-21 level this season – an opportunity between now and the end of the season.

Alan Pardew: “He’s doing absolutely brilliantly for us.

“He’s flying the flag for the Academy at the moment with his attitude, his application and his quality.”

Adam Armstrong: “It’s been good to be involved in the first team.

“I’ve just got to work hard every day on training, and hopefully I’ll get a chance. It’s important that I give everything whatever level I’m playing at.”

England Under-17 international is on the verge of the first team with Pardew short on striking options.

Leading scorer Loic Remy is suspended and striker Papiss Demba Cisse sidelined with a back problem.

Armstrong has scored 13 goals for the club so far this season. He has scored another seven times for his country.
