Paul Dummett chose Newcastle career over Wales

Paul Dummett withdrew himself from Wales selection for the sake of his Newcastle United career.

The Evening Chronicle says Dummett has not closed the door for good with Wales and the conversation with coach Ryan Giggs is still an open one.

But in the long run, Newcastle could prove to be the winners with Dummett set to return from the international break feeling fresh and focused for a tough run of Premier League games.

At first glance, the narrative may look like Dummett has snubbed Wales, but this story has more to it than that.

Dummett will be 28 near the end of this month and he is merely looking after those who pay his wages.
