Defender Lewis Hall has admitted that he is delighted after it was confirmed that he has now joined Newcastle United on a permanent basis from CHELSEA

The 19-year-old full-back has signed a long-term contract at St. James’ Park after impressing in his 22 appearances for the Magpies during the 2023-24 campaign, scoring twice.

And after the move was officially confirmed – the defender has opened up and revealed that he is proud and excited to carry on his adventure with Newcastle – Lewis Hall said: “I am extremely proud to be able to build on last season and continue my journey at Newcastle United. The fans, the manager and his staff, my teammates and everyone at the club have made me feel so welcome that I want to repay the faith they’ve shown in me.

“When you pull on the black and white shirt, there is no feeling like it and playing in front of the best supporters in the country is extra special for me being a Toon fan.

“I gained a lot of experience last season, and with the squad we have, we’ll be looking to push on even further this season. I can’t wait to get started.”

Newcastle United head coach, Eddie Howe said: “Lewis was a very good addition to our squad last season and we have been delighted with his progress and his contribution to the team.

“I’m very pleased to continue working with him. As well as being a talented player, he has a great attitude towards the game and to his own development and I’m excited for this next part of his journey in a Newcastle United shirt.”
