Adam Armstrong has suggested to The Sun that he wants to remain at Newcastle United next season.
The 19-year-old striker was on loan at Coventry City during the 2015-16 season and was a huge success at the Ricoh Arena.
The England Under-19 international scored as many as 20 goals for Coventry, who finished eighth in the League One table.
Armstrong has suggested that he wants to be part of the Newcastle squad for the 2016-17 campaign in the Championship.
“Newcastle is my club and that's who I want to play for,” Armstrong told The Sun. “I want to work really hard in pre-season and try and get into the gaffer's mind.”
Armstrong did well for Coventry this past season, and he deserve a chance in the Championship during the 2016-17 campaign.
Of course, it is unlikely that the teenager would be guaranteed a place in the Newcastle starting lineup, but he should be part of the squad at least.
The striker needs to progress, and being part of Rafael Benitez’s squad in the Championship is going to help him do just that.
What Newcastle should do is see how things go with Armstrong during the first six months of next season and then decide whether or not to send him out on loan again.
