Newcastle boss Pardew to hand Geordie striker Adam Campbell debut

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is ready to hand Geordie striker Adam Campbell a first team debut in their Europa League qualifier against Atromitos.

Should he appear for the Magpies, he would become the youngest ever player to play in Europe for the club – beating Andy Carroll’s record of 17 years and 300 days set against Palermo in 2006.

Pardew said: “Adam will be in the Under-21s side – we’ll field a strong team. Gael Bigirimana will play, Haris Vuckic will play, and so will James Tavernier.

“I need them to play, as I might need them this week.

“I just don’t know.”
