Newcastle, currently 13th in the Premier League table, are 4/1 with Sky Bet for relegation in May.

Benitez said: "If you talk about players that are important for the team, normally people talk about goalscorers, midfielders and number 10s, but in modern football there are not too many consistent left-sided full-backs.

"Paul is exactly that. He understands the game and you know what you can expect from him week in, week out. That's important when you have a lot of big games. He's a player you can trust."
