The teenager insists he won't get carried away.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "I just want to be involved as much as I can, but we've got some quality players in the team.
"I've got to bide my time, and hopefully I'll get in there.
"Last year I was worrying if I was going to be in the Youth Cup squad.
"Now I'm playing in front of 50,000 at St James's Park - it's a dream come true."
