Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie has tweeted that Rovers have agreed a fee with Newcastle for the pic5678
21-year-old striker. The deal is £1.75 million up front with the remainder in add-ons up to £3million. Armstrong spent the second half of last season on loan at Blackburn. He made a great impact for the club where he scored nine goals pic5678
in 21 games and helped them gain promotion from League One. A host of clubs have shown interest in signing Armstrong but it seems he looks all set to reunite with Tony Mowbray for a third time. The Blackburn boss has previously worked with him at Coventry City. A product of the club’s academy, Armstrong made pic5678
21 appearances for Newcastle but he has never scored for the Magpies. Signing a quality striker is essential for Newcastle and it remains to be seen whether Rafael Benitez can bring a good forward in the last few days of the transfer window.
