Elliot signs new four-year deal

Newcastle United goalkeeper Rob Elliot has penned a new contract with the club, according to the Mail Online.

The thirty year old broke into the North East side’s first team back in the 2012/13 season and has since racked up forty-eight appearances in all competitions.

He has not featured so far this season with Matz Sels starting the campaign as Rafael Benitez’s first choice, but has committed himself to the club for a further four years.

Elliot began his career with Charlton Athletic and played for them one hundred and ten times over an eight year spell before moving to St. James’s Park while he has also had loan stints with Notts County and Accrington Stanley.

Internationally, he has been capped four times by the Republic of Ireland with his last appearance coming in a 2-2 friendly draw with Slovakia back in March.
