Diame Talks Tough Over Contract Extension

Diame Talks Tough Over Contract Extension

Mohamed Diame has told Newcastle United the ball is in their court as he looks to extend his stay at St James’ Park until 2021.

The 31-year-old midfielder will secure an automatic 12-month deal if he starts three more Premier League games this season under the terms of his existing contract.

However, the French-born former Senegal international is looking for two years and could leave St James’ Park on a free transfer this summer if that clause is not triggered.

Diame said: “It will not be a problem because the club know my position. I am focused on what this club needs to stay up, as that is the most important thing.

“I have been playing a lot this season, so it will not be a problem to find another team. “They know I want to stay. But it’s not about me, it is about the club and what they want to do.

I am focused on the job of staying up and there will be time in the summer to think about this. “I am happy here, that’s what I can say. If I can stay I will stay, but if I have to go, I will go. It won’t be a problem.”
