Milner pens Magpies deal

13 Jul 2007 - 11:59:50

Newcastle United have agreed a new four-year contract with England Under-21 international James Milner.

The 21-year-old midfielder made 55 appearances during a busy 2006-07 campaign for the Magpies before jetting off to take part in last month's Under-21 European Championship in the Netherlands.

The former Leeds United youngster is now back in pre-season training following a short break and is looking forward to being part of a bright future at St James' Park.

Milner, who was brought to the club by former boss Sir Bobby Robson for £3.6million in 2004, has gone on to become a first-team regular after struggling to break into the picture under his successor Graeme Souness.

"I'm delighted to have signed a new contract," he told the club's official website.

"Newcastle United is a great football club and hopefully I can be here for a few more years yet and help the team be a success.

"It's certainly exciting times at the club and I am very happy to be a part of it."

Milner has made 101 appearances in his three seasons on Tyneside.
