Campbell's souper for St Mirren

On 2nd January Adam Campbell will be the latest Newcastle player to hook up with St Mirren - a loan move first mooted way back in September, after the striker had returned from a frustrating and abortive spell at Carlisle. In buddying up with the Buddies, Campbell will be following in the footsteps of Paul Dummett and Conor Newton - the latter having headed back to St Mirren Park this season after a stint there last year.

It wasn't that long ago that Campbell found himself on the fringes of the first-team squad, but that was partly because, with Loic Remy only a loanee, he's one of only three out-and-out strikers we own (alongside Papiss Cisse and Big Lad). Even if he does manage to make his mark north of the border, I suspect we'd be keener to sign a striker than to throw him into the fray.
