We take a closer look at Newcastle United's most exciting prospects.
Newcastle United have plenty of exciting young players coming through the ranks but only the very best will ultimately become first-team regulars
Here we take a look at three young Magpies who have what it takes to be senior stars by 2020.
One of the most exciting young English forwards in the game, Adam Armstrong is currently on loan at Barnsley, where he has scored four goals and provided three assists to date.
That record is well below his return at former loan club Coventry City, where he found the net 20 times in 40 League One matches, but by the next decade he will surely be playing week in, week out for Newcastle.
Another 19-year-old, Sean Longstaff is a goal-scoring midfielder who has wasted little time impressing on loan at Kilmarnock.
Goals in his first two matches – against Ross County and Hamilton – prove he has already outgrown Newcastle’s under-23s, for whom he scored regularly prior to his temporary switch.
By 2020 defender Jamie Sterry will be 24, and if he continues his current trajectory a first-team spot will be his for the taking.
The right-back impressed in a recent loan spell at Coventry and he looks to have a bright future at St. James’ Park.
