Nicky Butt has confirmed he will leave Newcastle in the summer. Writing in his programme notes he says Saturday was his last ever appearance at SJP in black and white. Nicky Butt: "It promises to be a special day for everyone, and it will also be an emotional one for me because it will be the last time I pull on a Newcastle shirt at St James' Park. "I have had a wonderful six years here ever since Sir Bobby Robson brought me to the club in 2004, but this summer, I will be moving on. "It will always be a club that holds a special place in my heart and I would like to thank the players, staff and fans for everything they have done for me over the years. "I hope that I will be back here as a spectator in the future to see the club lift more silverware."
