ADAM Campbell has joined League One club Carlisle United on a month’s loan.

The Newcastle United striker will stay at Brunton Park until September 14.

Campbell, 18, needs first-team experience before he can challenge for a place in Alan Pardew’s starting XI.

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott: “Adam is a good, young player who has been right on the fringes of the Newcastle United first team.

“I spoke with Alan 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.”

Scottish Premier League club St Mirren had also been keen to sign North Shields-born Campbell on loan.
