Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

This is a striker with 32 goals in total at youth level for the Tyneside outfit, including 11 so far this season (Transfermarkt), and so it is no surprise to see Kennedy react so strongly to the news.

The Verdict: Bright future

With Stephenson looking like he is going to stay with the Magpies long-term, he and the club certainly have a bright future.

His goals and overall performances this campaign have not gone unnoticed, as he was nominated for the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award back in September, the same month that former Toon manager Steve Bruce decided to promote him to the senior squad.

The 19-year-old has not yet played for the first team, but if the fans have their way, Stephenson will get his chance soon under Eddie Howe.
