Blackburn Rovers have signed Newcastle forward Adam Armstrong on loan for the rest of the season.
The 20-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at Sky Bet Championship side Bolton, and has now secured a similar deal until the summer at Ewood Park.
Armstrong has made 17 appearances for Newcastle's first team.
The move sees the striker reunite with Tony Mowbray, who managed him at Coventry during the 2015-16 season.
That campaign saw Armstrong hit the net 20 times for the Ricoh Arena side.
Armstrong then signed a new deal with the Magpies until 2020 before heading on loan again the following season to Barnsley.
He scored three goals for Bolton this season, twice in the EFL Cup and once in the Championship, in 23 appearances.
