Newcastle's Paul Dummett on course for Euro 2016 place if he can prove fitness

The Newcastle United player is reportedly still very much in Wales' plans for the summer.

According to a report from Chronicle Live, Newcastle United defender Paul Dummett is in with a chance of playing at this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament despite failing to feature for the Magpies yet this season.

A hamstring injury has meant Dummett has been on the side-lines for the majority of the campaign, with a place on the bench against Northampton Town the only time he has made the match-day squad since Steve McClaren took charge at St James’ Park.

But the 24-year-old is now fit and available again, with the Chronicle suggesting he could feature in the upcoming Premier League match against Norwich City.

Wales qualified for the prestigious tournament at the weekend and despite winning only one international cap to date, the report claims Chris Coleman is keeping a very close eye on the Newcastle player.

The Welsh FA have reportedly kept in contact with Dummett during his spell out injured and it is being claimed he stands a good chance of making the squad for Euro 2016 if he can remain fit in the interim.

How Newcastle could do with a fit and firing Dummett to reinforce their shaky defence, and that will no doubt be his main focus regardless of the talk of future international recognition.
