TRANSFERS: Magpies attacker joins United

15 August 2013

Campbell pens month long loan deal

Carlisle United have today added teenage striker / wide man Adam Campbell to the Brunton Park ranks on a one-month loan deal which keeps the Newcastle United hot-shot at Brunton Park until midnight on 14 September 2013.

North Shields born Campbell, 18, joined the Magpies in 2002 having cut his footballing teeth with Wallsend Boys Club.

Now a regular in the U18 and Reserve sides over in the north east, Campbell has earned call-ups to both the England U16 and U17 squads as his reputation continues to grow.

He made his senior debut for Newcastle United in the Europa League fourth qualifying round tie at Atrmitos in August 2012 and has three first team Premier League appearances under his belt – all from last season.

“Adam is a good, young player who has been right on the fringes of the Newcastle United first team,” manager Greg Abbott said. 

"I spoke with Alan [Pardew] about him and he thinks a heck of a lot of him. He's at a stage of the season where he wants Adam to get more football and he knows that we look after players like this.

"We have a really good relationship with Newcastle and Alan knows that we are after numbers to help our squad at the moment. Hopefully this is one of those that will work out for all parties because there is no doubt that we are getting a good player who has a bright future ahead of him."

This transfer remains subject to the finalisation and registration of all paperwork.
