Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is pleased with the form of Paul Dummett in preseason.

The Academy product is wanted by Birmingham City and Millwall, but Pardew has been delighted with his progress in pre-season.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "The real bonus has been the lad who has been bonus of the first week of pre-season - Paul Dummett.

"He is really showing up well. He is giving Davide Santon a run.

"It is great to see one of our young lads from the Academy putting pressure on."
