Starting his career with Newcastle he struggled to break into the first team at St James' Park, instead building his reputation with a string of loan moves. After a successful temporary spell with Blackburn, he made the switch to Ewood Park permanent in 2018.

Armstrong has been enjoying the best season of his career this time out, netting 19 goals in 32 Championship appearances. Only the highly rated Ivan Toney and Teemu Pukki have managed more in the second tier.

His fine displays have also been attracting Premier League interest, with West Ham and Brighton both being linked with respective moves.
