Kell Watts has signed a new deal with Newcastle United.
Watts is with Stevenage on loan and has agreed terms on a new, long-term deal with his boyhood club.
He told the club's website: "I'm a young centre half and for young centre halves to be playing, you've got to have a lot of trust from the manager who you're playing under.
"So I think for me, I just want to get as many games in the professional game as I can, really get my tally of numbers up, how many starts I've made, so I can be a young centre half with experience. You don't need to be in your thirties to have experience - you can be young and have done a lot."
