Does Paul Dummett deserve a new contract?

Dummett’s current contract runs until the end of the 2017-18 season, which means that he already has a long-term deal.

However, given the 23-year-old’s progress and impressive performances of late, it makes sense for Newcastle to hand him an improved contract.

One of the Wales international’s strengths is his versatility, as he can play both as a left-back and as a centre-back.

Last season Dummett made 25 appearances in the Premier League, creating 15 chances in the process.

The Welshman had a pass accuracy of 74% and a shot accuracy of 25%, and won 84 headers, two dribbles and 31 tackles.
