Newcastle attacker reveals uncertainty over future, keen to secure January move
Newcastle United striker Adam Armstrong has revealed his future is currently undecided as he comes to the end of a six month loan spell at Championship side Bolton Wanderers.
The 20-year-old joined up with the Trotters over the summer as he looked to earn himself more first team game time, although he has found himself utilised on the wing as well as his natural centre forward role.
With his current deal set to expire over the January window, he has admitted he is still unaware as to what the Magpies plan to do with him for the second half of the season, although suggested he would be happy to move back to Bolton if the opportunity arose.
He told Bolton’s official matchday programme, as quoted by the Chronicle: “I’m enjoying my football at the moment. I’ve already seen an improvement in my game but I’m taking it each match as it comes.
“You can’t think too far ahead in football because it changes in an instant. Nobody knows what the future holds or what might happen in January but all I can do is keep kicking on, working hard and giving my all for Bolton.
“I’m getting the games and I’m just working hard to help the team. I’m loving it.”

A graduate of the youth system at St James’ Park, Armstrong has made 21 appearances for the first team, the majority of which have come from the substitutes’ bench, although he is still waiting for his first goal for the senior side.
This season has seen him make 21 appearances for Bolton across all competitions, 16 coming in the starting XI, which have resulted in him netting three goals for his loan club.
