Adam Armstrong completes Blackburn move from Newcastle

Blackburn have completed the permanent signing of striker Adam Armstrong from Newcastle.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Ewood Park, and has now made the switch after the two clubs agreed a deal.

Armstrong is set to cost newly promoted Blackburn £1.75m, but the fee could rise to £3m with add-ons, Sky Sports News understands.

The striker scored three goals in 23 appearances for Bolton during a loan spell in the first half of last season before joining Tony Mowbray’s side on a temporary basis in January.

Armstrong made his Newcastle debut in March 2014 and went on to make 17 appearances for his hometown club.
