News today in the Evening Chronicle that Paul Dummett, who has had a very successful loan spell at St. Mirren in the Scottish Premier League, is to get a new deal to stay at his home town club.
Conor Newton and Paul Dummett after St. Mirren Cup win
Both Paul Dummett and Conor Newton are on loan at the Scottish club, and both played the full game in the recent 3-2 win over Hearts in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden Park,
The Welsh U21 international left-back and Conor Newton were called back to Newcastle by manager Alan Pardew last Wednesday, so he could congratulate them on their Scottish Cup triumph.
But Conor, who scored in the Cup Final will not be getting a new deal, and since his contract runs out in the summer, he will be leaving Newcastle.
Dummett was delighted to have been given the chance to break into Newcastle’s first team and he has this to say:
“I think Newcastle are going to offer me a new deal. It seems they want to keep me. My contract with the club ends in the summer, but the indication is that I’ll stay on.”
“I’m not exactly sure what is going to happen, but I would hope to report back in the summer to the club and I’ll be coming back a much better player for my year with St Mirren.”
“My hope is to break into the Newcastle team and I’ll be out to impress the manager in training.” “The manager asked for Conor and myself to come in and see him so he could congratulate us, which was a brilliant gesture.”
We think more Newcastle youngsters could depart the club this summer, with the expectation that four of five top youngsters will be brought into the club.
