Some Newcastle fans reacted on social media in order to share that they were less then pleased over Adam Armstrong potentially being sold after it was reported that the the club had agreed a deal with Blackburn Rovers.

The Sun reported that the Magpies had agreed a deal worth £3million in order to part with their 5ft 8in tall attacker (Source: Transfermarkt) this summer.

The British tabloid stated that Blackburn Rovers would pay an initial £1.75million for Armstrong but that they could end up paying an additional £1.25m due to performance-related add-ons included in the deal.

Several Magpies fans shared their concern that the club were getting rid of a promising talent while some stated that the Championship side had gotten a very good deal as £3million was a cheap price to pay.

Nothing But Newcastle has rounded up several tweets about the Magpies agreeing a deal to part with Armstrong:


While some are upset over Armstrong’s price tag and others are concerned that the 21-year-old could soon develop into a player capable of featuring in the Premier League, the general consensus is that Magpies fans are left unhappy over this reported deal. However Blackburn Rovers are no doubt thrilled at welcoming back the attacker who excelled for them on loan last season as he could help them make an instant impact in their first season back in the Championship.  The 21-year-old forward is no doubt disappointed to leave his boyhood club but is probably chomping at the bit over getting to be able to regularly prove his attacking talents in England’s second-tier.
