Newcastle United defender James Perch is confident of plenty of action this season thanks to a Europa League run.

Toon have drawn Atromitos in their Europa League qualifier.

Perch told the Evening Chronicle: "When you look at it, we've got the European games, and hopefully a better cup run than in the last couple of years.

"That means more games in the calendar for Newcastle, which hopefully means more games for me.

"Versatility's the key, and I'm willing to step in wherever and whenever."
