A lot of Newcastle United fans have flooded to a tweet from Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie, who has revealed an interesting claim on a potential transfer deal benefitting the Tyneside club.
Would you have taken Armstrong back at NUFC?
The striker excelled in the Championship with Blackburn, having netted 28 goals over the course of the 2020/21 season, in which he made 40 appearances for Tony Mowbray’s side (via Transfermarkt).
What exactly did these Newcastle fans have to say?
“£11m pounds made from a sell-on clause Ashley Masterclass”
The striker made 21 appearances for the Toon’s first team during his spell at the club, but was unable to find the back of the net in those appearances despite netting 17 in 26 appearances for the U23s side (via Transfermarkt).
Going by the reaction of these Toon fans, it appears they have been left pleasantly surprised by their club planning for the future when selling Armstrong three years ago as they are now set to profit from a healthy sum of money.
