Paul Dummett

Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett has signed a new contract which could extend to six years.

Tyneside-born Dummett, 22, made his United debut at Brighton in the FA Cup last January.

The Wales Under-21 international's full Premier League debut came in last Sunday's Wear-Tyne derby.

"Like so many local lads it has been my boyhood dream to play for this club and now I am looking forward to repaying their faith in me," said Dummett.

"This is a great moment for my family and so many others who have supported me over the years and I would like to thank them all."

Last season, Dummett won a Scottish League Cup winners' medal whilst on loan at St Mirren, during which time he played 36 games for the Buddies.
