Blackburn Rovers have agreed a deal with Newcastle United for striker Adam Armstrong, according to Sky sources.
The 21-year-old was on loan at Ewood Park last season and is expected to cost newly promoted Blackburn £1.75m, but the fee could rise to £3m with add-ons.
Armstrong scored three goals in 23 appearances for Bolton during a loan spell in the first half of last season before joining Tony Mowbray's side on a temporary basis in January.
He scored nine times in 21 matches as Blackburn sealed promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship at the first attempt.
Transfer Talk: Is it the end for Martial?
The Transfer Talk panel discuss whether Anthony Martial's increasingly-strained relationship with Jose Mourinho can be repaired.
Armstrong made his Newcastle debut in March 2014 and went on to make 17 appearances for the club.
He enjoyed a successful loan spell with Coventry in 2015-16 before joining Barnsley the following year.
Blackburn have already signed Chelsea midfielder Kasey Palmer on a season-long loan deal, while Joe Rothwell has joined from Oxford United and Jacob Davenport has signed from Manchester City.
They start their Championship season away to Ipswich on Saturday.
