The 18-year-old, who can play up front or on the wing, is expected to go straight into manager Greg Abbott's squad for Saturday's home game against Coventry.

"Adam is a good young player who has been right on the fringes of the Newcastle United first team," Abbott told the club's official website.

"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."

Campbell, who has represented England at Under 16 and 17 level, made his senior debut for Newcastle in the Europa League fourth qualifying round tie at Atrmitos in August 2012 and has made three Barclays Premier League appearances.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
