Fresh from winning the Under-20s World Cup earlier this summer, Adam Armstrong joined Bolton Wanderers on loan from Newcastle United in July 2017.

During that time, he also enjoyed successful loan stints with both Coventry City and Barnsley, scoring 20 goals in 40 outings to be named in the 2015/16 Sky Bet League PFA Team of the Year with the former and netting six times in the Sky Bet Championship for the Tykes last season.

A seasoned England youth international, Armstrong has proven his worth in front of goal at every level from Under-16 to Under-20, winning the FIFA U20 World Cup with the latter earlier this summer, while he was also a UEFA European Under-17 Championships winner with the Young Lions back in 2014.

And following a successful summer with England Under-20s, the forward has now agreed terms with Wanderers on a loan deal which will see him play his football at Macron Stadium until the start of 2018.
