North East Connected

Woodman Seeing 2020

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 19.18.50The highly-rated 19-year-old has committed his future to the Magpies, putting pen to paper on a new contract that will keep him at St. James’ Park until 2020.

He has extended his stay on Tyneside after a season in which he made his senior debut while on loan at Crawley Town, before helping England Under-19s reach the semi-finals of the European Under-19 Championships earlier this summer.

After joining the Red Devils last July, London-born Woodman made 12 appearances at the Checkatrade.comStadium before an injury to Tim Krul saw him return to the North-East after his season-long loan was cut short.

He ended last season as understudy to Karl Darlow in the United goal.

Woodman, who has been capped by England at under-16, under-17, under-18 and under-19 level, also had a short spell on loan at Hartlepool United in 2014.

“I’m delighted,” he said.

“I’ve been at this Club for five years and I do consider this place home now.

“It’s a great moment for me and my family to continue the journey with Newcastle and sign for four more years.”
