Lee Ryder, a chief sports writer for The Chronicle Live, reports that Rangers have sought out the services of  Newcastle United’s Adam Campbell in a loan deal.

The diminutive forward was profiled by Rangers Report back in December.

Adam Campbell, striker/winger

19 years old, currently on loan with Hartlepool United.  Began the season on loan with Fleetwood.  Has made a total of six appearances this season while on loan & has yet to score.  Made 12 appearances last season while on loan with St Mirren & scored two goals.

Ed Harrison, who runs The Newcastle United Blog, explained“Two years ago this 19 year-old local striker was a top Newcastle youngster but for some reason he has gone off the boil a little.  He had a loan spell last season at St Mirren where he scored two goals in 12 appearances and a two game loan spell at the beginning of the season at Fleetwood  Town.”

“Adam is 5′ 7″ tall and needs some first team games.”

“He was a prolific goal-scorer when younger and capped at the England U16,U17 and U19 levels.”

“He’s played five times for the Newcastle first team in the season before last.”

Robert Bishop, the managing editor for Coming Home Newcastle, elaborated – “Campbell was on loan at Fleetwood Town and got almost no playing time. If they could assure minutes, I would think he’s a prime candidate to move.”

Matt Feltzwho writes for I wish I was a Geordieadded – “He’s a young striker with plenty of accolades at youth level, but who seems to have stalled out at this point – a disturbing trend among NUFC academy players.”

“He made a handful of appearances in the Premier and Europa Leagues two seasons ago, but has been on loan since, most notably to St Mirren last year.  In his cameos, he looked to be full of youthful energy, but not much of a physical presence (he’s only 5’7″), and the ball didn’t seem to come to him very often.”

You can read more about Campbell in a profile that was featured on Newcastle United’s official website.

  1. Just what we need another striker to go with the 6 we already have .Surely the priorities must be a centre half and a central midfield player ,With possibly a right back and a keeper thrown in .Certainly don`t need another striker unless we can get rid of a couple of the non performers currently stinking out the place (Boyd and Shiels come to mind )
