WANTED ... Newcastle's Adam Campbell.

ADAM Campbell is set for another spell away from Newcastle United - with St Mirren hoping to sign him at the second attempt.

The striker returned to St James’s Park last week after a month-long loan at Carlisle United was cancelled.

Campbell only made one substitute’s appearance for the League One club during his fortnight at Brunton Park. He was an unused substitute in the second game of his spell.

Newcastle were looking for the 18-year-old to start games - not sit on the bench.

And United manager Alan Pardew will now listen to other clubs keen to take the North Shields-born player on loan.

Asked about Campbell’s abortive spell at Carlisle, Pardew said: “That didn’t work out at Carlisle, and he won’t be going back there.”

St Mirren have again declared an interest in taking Campbell to Paisley.

They club have already borrowed midfielder Conor Newton, who is on a six-month loan.

Newton also had a spell at the Scottish Premier League club last season with defender Paul Dummett, who is now part of Newcastle’s first-team squad.

Dummett and Newton helped the club win the Scottish League Cup last term.

St Mirren manager Danny Lennon has pledged to give Campbell the regular football Pardew feels he needs at this stage of his career.
