Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he needs to assess his young players coming through.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says he needs to assess his young players coming through.

Pardew is facing a decision over midfielder Sammy Ameobi, while youngsters Adam Armstrong, who made his senior debut as a substitute in last weekend’s 1-0 defeat at Fulham, and Remi Streete pushing hard.

He said: "It’s important because I have to start planning for next year.

"Is Sammy Ameobi going to be good enough? Is Armstrong going to feature next year, or do I loan him out for a bit more experience?

"I have got Remi Streete, who is doing particularly well in the development group - is he going to get a game? Does he need to go out on loan? Massadio [Haidara] has not had much action.

"They all need to be answered, those questions, in the next few weeks."
