"It's a massive move for me. I'll be putting in 100% in every game for the club." - Coventry City's Adam Armstrong

28 July 2015

The 18-year old striker is eager to take his chance with the Sky Blues following his loan move from Newcastle United...

Coventry City's new loan signing Adam Armstrong believes his move to the Sky Blues 'is massive in my career'.

The Sky Blues snapped up the highly-rated 18-year old on a youth loan deal ahead of the 2015/16 League One season.

The England Under-18 international has already made 19 appearances for Newcastle United, after making his debut for the club at the age of 16.

After signing for the Sky Blues, Armstrong expressed his delight at the loan move and hopes to show City fans 'what he's all about'.

The striker said: "I'm delighted to get it done as it is massive in my career. It's a big move and I can't wait to get started.

"I want to progress during my time here and do really well for the club. I like to think I'm quick and got a few skills about me.

"I've got an eye for goals and I want to score a lot of goals for the club. I've got to claim my place in the side first but that's the aim.

"I'm really looking forward to the start of the season against Wigan Athletic and can't wait to get started."

Armstrong won't be available for tonight's pre-season match against Cambridge United but could play a part against Oxford United at Nuneaton Town on Saturday.

The young striker has a fantastic goal-scoring for England at Under-17 and Under-18 level, and he believes it has been a valuable experience.

He added: "There's no secret to the record really. When you've got the three lions on your crest, I suppose it's a bit different.

"No matter what age group it is, it's massive to play for your country and I always try and do well for England.

"It's been a great experience but you need to put 100% into every single game you play, whether it's for club or country.

"That's what I want to bring to Coventry. I'll be putting in 100% for the club in every game as I want to take this chance."
