Newcastle United prospect’s defiant message on Twitter

Newcastle United youngster Adam Campbell told his followers on Twitter that 'some big things are happening' and '2015 is gonna be my year'.

Ambitious Newcastle United frontman Adam Campbell has reiterated his desire to break into the club's first-team by telling supporters that 2015 will be his year:


The talented 19-year-old is a player that the Newcastle coaching staff have high hopes for, and after breaking into the first-team last season, albeit only for five appearances, many hoped that he would be able to build on that experience. 

Last month, upon returning to fitness and netting in an Under-21 game, the diminutive attacker told the club's official website that his main goal is still to break into the first-team set up.

''I've always wanted to play for Newcastle and that remains my main goal,'' said Campbell. ''I'm going to be staying here and I'm going to be working hard and then, if a loan comes up and the manager think it's right for me, then I'll look to go out on loan.

''But like I say, Newcastle's my club and this is where I want to be so hopefully I can stay here as long as I can.'' 

Determined, ambitious, explosive and hard-working are just many ways to describe the North Shields-born youngster but at just 19, he has plenty of time at refining his game to help him reach his potential.

Earlier in the season, Campbell was sent out on a one-month loan to League One side Fleetwood Town, but he became unstuck due to injuries. He played four times, scoring no goals, before retuning to Newcastle in order to complete his rehabilitation.

Due to the stop/start nature of his season, Campbell has yet to be named in a first-team matchday squad so far this campaign.

However, once he hits his stride then he certainly has the ability to ensure he is there or thereabouts in the second part of the season.
