Jamie Sterry wants to stay at Newcastle next season and earn more first-team opportunities

The right-back made his Premier League debut on the final day of this past season.

Jamie Sterry has confirmed that the plan is for him to stay at Newcastle United next season, and suggested that he wants to earn more first-team opportunities at St James' Park, the Shields Gazette reports.

The 20-year-old made his debut for the Magpies on the final day of this past campaign as he featured for the final few minutes of the club's emphatic 5-1 victory over Tottenham.

But while their relegation has left several players' futures up in the air, Sterry insisted that he will be trying to help the side return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

"I think I'll be staying. I had a good chat about that," he told the Shields Gazette

"Hopefully, I'll get a good chance next year and play a few games and push on."

With Rafael Benitez's men falling into the Championship, the right-back may think that he has a much better chance of seeing regular first-team football. 

Some of the established members of the squad may be looking to move on in the summer. And while preparing for a top flight campaign would probably see the manager look to bring in replacements, the number of youngsters that appear to be knocking on the door may give the man in charge plenty of confidence that he has most of the resources he needs to get the club back to where they feel they belong.
