Indeed, although much was said about Lewis Miley during Newcastle’s preseason tour of the United States, it is difficult to image the teenager receiving the number of minutes he has been allotted this season if Sandro Tonali and Joe Willock had been available the entire year.Furthermore, Jamaal Lascelles exists.

 

Last season, the defender was largely ignored as Fabian Schar and Sven Botman established themselves as Eddie Howe’s preferred central defensive duo.

 

Nevertheless, despite the circumstance surrounding Botman’s injury that permitted club captain Lascelles to return to the lineup, Howe still found time during the tour of America to publicly commend the defender, emphasizing how highly regarded he is in the background.

 

Further understanding regarding his future has now surfaced.The latest on Jamaal Lascelles’ contract with Newcastle

The Chronicle reports that, in private discussions, the club continues to engage with representatives of the players.

 

The club has taken action on the 30-year-old, who is under contract until June of next year and was previously linked with a move away, due to his improved form.

 

According to the report, the former Nottingham Forest youth is considered an integral part of Howe’s future plans.Jamaal Lascelles, the commander of Newcastle, merits reverence.

Schar, Botman, and a prospective younger acquisition such as Jarrad Branthwaite might be more alluring long-term alternatives, but Lascelles merits due regard.

 

Since his captain was lauded as “unbelievable” behind the scenes by colleague Dan Burn, Howe has been effusive in his admiration for him this season.

 

After 245 appearances with Newcastle, Lascelles is undoubtedly performing at his highest level to date. Even though more opponents may enter his position, he has demonstrated that he is prepared to compete by improving his game.

 

He will have earned a new contract well in excess of what is required.
