Newcastle United: Jamie Sterry pens new four-year deal

Newcastle United defender Jamie Sterry has committed his long-term future by singing a new four-year contract at the club.

The right-back, who came through the academy club, made his first-team appearance against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at the end of last season.

“I’m delighted to sign a new contract with Newcastle – my boyhood club,” the 20-year-old told the club’s official website. “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.”

Sterry will joins fellow youngsters Rolando Aarons, Freddie Woodman and Adam Armstrong in signing new deals.
