Jamie Sterry comments on Twitter after signing contract with Newcastle United

Newcastle Utd - Gate

Jamie Sterry has signed his first professional contract with Premier League outfit Newcastle United.

Jamie Sterry has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at signing his first professional contract with Newcastle United.

The 19-year-old defender put pen to paper on the deal last week, and on Saturday he posted the following message on Twitter:

Sterry is a highly-rated defender who trained with the Newcastle first team last season.

In fact, the youngster was even included in the squad for the Premier League game against Manchester United at St. James’ Park in March.

However, the youngster failed to make the 18-man matchday squad, although he will get the chance to feature in the Premier League in the upcoming 2015-16 campaign.

Sterry, who was born in Newcastle in 1995, is a right-sided defender who is known for being strong in the tackles and for his pace.

The youngster’s favourite footballer of all time is former Newcastle, Tottenham Hotspur and Rangers midfielder Paul Gascoigne.
