Coventry boss Mowbray plays down Newcastle return for hotshot Armstrong

Coventry City manager Tony Mowbray has played down talks that Adam Armstrong is set to be recalled by Newcastle United.

Armstrong has been in sensational form this season having scored 19 goals for the League One club and there were talks that new Magpies manager Rafael Benitez would be looking to recall the striker back to St. James' Park for the final nine Premier League games of the season in their bid to stave off relegation.

However, Sky Blues boss Mowbray has refuted such claims and has stated that there has not been any talk of a potential recall for Armstrong after he spoke with Benitez.

"He's been up there, been in the building, seen the manager and is back here in training so it doesn't appear as if anything is happening," he told the Coventry Telegraph.

"At this moment, as we sit here now, there doesn't seem to be any recall."
