It has been announced on the official Newcastle United Web Site, that Nicky Butt has signed a new contract at the club, which will keep him at Newcastle United until the end of next season.
Nicky Butt – at Newcastle until June, 2009 with one year option after that
The 31-year-old’s current deal expires in June of next year but the midfield star has now agreed just a one-year extension, but with the option of a further year beyond that.
Sir Bobby Robson signed Butt in the summer of 2004, and Nicky has now made 95 appearances for the Geordies, scoring three goals.
While he had a difficult time initially at Newcastle, and was loaned out to Birmingham City for a season, he has come back very well over the last season and a half and shown a lot of guts and spirit to win over the Newcastle faithful. He is now a key player in Sam Allardyceâ€™s new look Newcastle United side.
Weâ€™re glad Nicky has signed his extension, because he a good player with plenty of experience at the very top level with Manchester United, and he has just a fantastic attitude.Â Hopefully he can help us capture Wes Brown in the summer too.Â Â Â 😀
