Newcastle fullback Dummett: Surreal, weird to play with Bale

Newcastle United fullback Paul Dummett is delighted to be involved with the senior Wales squad.

Dummett is treasuring the chance to work alongside Real Madrid star Gareth Bale.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "It was incredible really. One minute I was watching Sky and he was training with Ronaldo, the next he was training alongside me!

"It was a surreal and weird experience to be training with the best in the world. But it can only hold me in good stead.

"He's a down to earth guy and didn't come across as big-headed at all. In fact he was quite quiet. He was a really nice lad.

"It's good to learn from the best."
