Paul Dummett came through the youth system at Newcastle United, and has made over 140 appearances for the club since breaking into the first-team picture.

There are certainly players in the Newcastle squad more talented than Dummett, but few work harder, and that is one of the main reasons for his popularity at the club.

Dummett turned 28 on Wednesday, and the club’s official Twitter account was on hand with a special birthday message for the defender.

As expected, that brought a host of responses from the Newcastle fans, with many paying tribute to the Wales international.

The 6ft ace has played every minute of Newcastle’s 2018-19 Premier League season, and has been one of their most consistent players during what has been a tough start.

Dummett also captained the Magpies against Chelsea in the absence of Jamaal Lascelles, and one Newcastle fan claimed that the left-back should be the next permanent skipper.

It is difficult to imagine Dummett ever leaving Newcastle, and there is no question that he is one of the club’s most popular players.
