After Newcastle had put in a good performance in front 33,846 fans last night, and been knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Manchester City, there’s still some good news this morning, and it’s concerning 22 year-old Paul Dummett.
Paul Dummett – offered new deal
Paul came on at the start of the second half in place of the impressive Massadio Haidara last night, who had limped off at half time, but then Paul himself got a knock, and was replaced by Ben Arfa after 81 minutes.
The news today is that Paul will be offered a six-year bumper deal, that will keep him at the club until he’s 28, and we expect the Kenton lad to sign the deal, and he deserves a new deal after he has looked good this season, and that comes after a very successful loan at St Mirren last season in the Scottish Premier League.
Paul had talked about wanting to stay at his home town club earlier in the season:
“Staying at Newcastle was always my No 1 priority. The fans do like to see Geordies in the team.”
“We have had that down the years with Andy Carroll and Steven Taylor.” “Being out on loan has helped me. It is all about playing week-in, week-out.
Newcastle will be hoping that Paul can still improve a lot with more games in the Newcastle first team, and of course he can also play in a number of different positions too.
Paul played 36 times with two goals for St. Mirren last season, and so far has five appearances with one goal for Newcastle this season.
