With his small yet strong physique, Adam Armstrong is built rather like a young Wayne Rooney and that's not the only similarity between the England under-16 frontman and the Manchester United star.

Armstrong, a hugely gifted number ten, is a creative player who can also score goals and idolises Rooney despite being a lifelong Newcastle supporter who joined the Club as a nine-year-old.

The former Walbottle Campus Technology College pupil and Newcastle City Juniors player got better as the 2012/13 season went on and will be hoping to make a big impact this term, his first as a full-time footballer.

He made a great start as he hit five goals in his first five Barclays Under-21 Premier League matches.
