Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers interested in signing Newcastle United's Adam Armstrong on loan

St James Park

Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Newcastle United's Adam Armstrong on loan, after seeing the youngster thrive at Coventry City.

According to the Chronicle, Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Newcastle United front-man Adam Armstrong in January.

Armstrong is currently on loan at Coventry City, and his performances in League One have been nothing short of scintillating.

The youngster has netted 12 times in 14 appearances for the Sky Blues, and Wolves have reportedly held discussions over signing the talented forward.

Kenny Jackett has already confirmed to the Express and Star that Wolves will be active in the January transfer market, and it is thought that Armstrong is high up on his wishlist.

The 18-year-old is yet to play at Championship level, but the ease at which he has adapted to playing in England’s third tier has suggested that he is capable of being successful at a higher level.

Newcastle are thought to be debating whether to give Armstrong a run in their first-team when his loan switch at Coventry comes to an end in the new year, but they feel a temporary move to the Championship may be better for his development in the long run.

If he does join Wolves, Armstrong will be competing with the likes of Benik Afobe and Adam Le Fondre for a place in Jackett’s starting line-up.
