Adam Armstrong will leave Newcastle United and join Coventry City on a season-long loan deal, according to The Coventry Telegraph.

The British newspaper claims that paperwork should be completed in time for the 18-year-old forward to make his debut for the League One outfit tonight.

Coventry will take on Cambridge United in a pre-season friendly tonight, and The Coventry Telegraph claims that Armstrong will feature in it.

The Northern Echo has reported that Newcastle head coach Steve McClaren is not in a rush to sign Charlie Austin from Queens Park Rangers.

According to the report, the former Nottingham Forest and Derby County manager wants to see how new signings Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel Mbemba get on with the rest of the squad before making more signings.

Meanwhile, The Mirror claims that Newcastle will increase their offer for English forward Austin if they get assurances over his shoulder and knee problems.

It has been reported that the Magpies are confident that if they raise their offer to £13.25 million, then they will be able to get their man even though Rangers are holding out for £15m.
