For the second time in 24 hours Newcastle have given a new contract to one of their promising youngsters and a local lad too.
20 year-old Jamie Sterry has just been given a new four year deal at Newcastle and that follows Adam Armstrong’s new four year deal he signed yesterday.
20 year-old Jamie Sterry – new four year deal
This is hat Newcastle have just put in their web-site:
Promising defender Jamie Sterry has signed a new four-year contract with the Magpies.
The news caps a good week for the Newcastle-born 20-year-old, who made his full debut for the Club in Tuesday night’s EFL Cup win against Cheltenham.
Academy product Sterry made his senior bow as a substitute against Tottenham on the final day of last season.
The right-back is the latest of Rafa Benitez’s young players to commit his long-term future to the Club, following
Freddie Woodman, Rolando Aarons and Adam Armstrong who have all agreed new contracts in recent weeks.
This is what Jamie said after signing the new deal:
“I’m delighted to sign a new contract with Newcastle, my boyhood Club.
“I’ve worked really hard to get here and this week has been really good for me, starting for the first time and now this.
“I’ve learnt a lot, especially under the manager but also under every coach and every manager, and I’d like to thank my family and girlfriend.
“Now I just need to keep working hard and hopefully get more opportunities to play in front of our fans.”
Rafa Benitez with the help of Managing Director Lee Charnley have been getting though a lot of work in singing new players and selling players who are surplus to requirements.
But they are also taking care of the promising youngsters coming through the club – who are so important for the future of the club.
