St Mirren hero Paul Dummett will remain a Premier League player after extending his contract with Newcastle United.

The Welsh left-back has been with Newcastle United his entire career and since his spell at Saints in the 2012/13 season, has only played for the Premier League club. Dummett has signed a one-year contract extension ahead of the 2021/22 campaign, alongside new deals for Jacob Murphy, Federico Fernández, Dwight Gayle and Fabian Schar.

While only spending one season in Paisley, Dummett is remembered as a St Mirren hero. He played 36 times for the cinch Premiership side in the 12/13 season, the Newcastle United loanee setting up one of the goals in the club’s historic 3-2 League Cup final victory over Hearts.

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce said: “I’m delighted to extend the players’ contracts. They all have a thorough understanding of this club and what it takes to play here, and they have all made excellent contributions over recent years. The hard work preparing for the new season has already begun and we’re looking forward.”
