Newcastle United fullback James Tavernier is playing his way to a new deal.

Tavernier is currently impressing on-loan at Sheffield Wednesday.

He told the Sunday Sun: "It has been a fantastic experience to come to Newcastle United and I have learned so much since I have been here.

"I would say the aim this year is just to progress.

"Of course I would love to play for Newcastle, but if that means another loan spell I am fine with that.

"The manager (Alan Pardew) has shown he is not afraid to give young players a chance and that is a big encouragement."
