Dummett was one of the few players to show up well for the Magpies during a campaign to forget as they suffered relegation to the second tier of English football.

Newcastle recently handed the defender a new long-term contract as they look to keep him on board in the hope they can earn an immediate return to the Premier League.

However, Crystal Palace and Stoke, along with West Brom, are all understood to be ready to pounce for Dummett over the summer.

Eagles boss Alan Pardew knows the 24-year-old well from his time in charge at St James’ Park and was linked with a move during the January transfer window.

Potters chief Mark Hughes has put a new central defender at the top of his wanted list and is also set to make an approach for the Magpies star.

The Wales international is expected to make up part of Chris Coleman’s 23-man squad at Euro 2016 and any interested suitors may have to wait until the tournament is over to get a deal done.
