His new contract at the club will see him pass his 36th birthday, and handing such a long deal to a 30-year-old would usually be an unusual stance for the club to take, although they did give Alan Pardew eight years!

Despite Newcastle being able to keep hold of an essential asset to their side, supporters do not see him staying for anywhere near that length of time.
One fan said that the deal was put together to insert a relegation clause into his contract, while another believes he will be sold in January for a more substantial transfer fee.
Here you will find some of the best comments from Newcastle fans:
Extra money when we go down
