Newcastle United central midfielder Nicky Butt has signed a one-year contract extension which will keep him at the Newcastle club until the end of next season.
Nicky Butt – signed a one year deal extension today
The 34-year-old signed for Newcastle United while Bobby Robson was still manager, in the summer of 2004, and has gone on to make 138 appearances scoring five times along the way.
After a less than good start at Newcastle, Nicky has done really well since returning from his season long loan spell at Birmingham, from 2006 – 2006.
That was under then manager Steve Bruce, and if Birmingham had not been relegated that season, Nicky would have joined Brum in a £2M deal, that had already been agreed between the two clubs.
Nicky has played well for the Geordies, and his experience is often vital to the side, and he wants to stay at Newcastle too, which we found out recently is still important for all our players who remain at the club.
We don’t want players who don’t want to be here and fight for the cause, whatever their reasons, valid or otherwise.
Butt joins team-mates and local lads Steve Harper and Shola Ameobi in committing their future to the Newcastle club since the beginning of the year.
