A tough-tackling midfielder, Jack joined his hometown club in June 2014 after seeing out his contract at local rivals Sunderland.
Raised in Killingworth, North Tyneside, Jack played his academy football on Wearside from the age of ten and he progressed through the ranks before two successful loan spells at Ipswich Town edged him into the first team set-up at the Stadium of Light.
After making 115 Premier League appearances for the club, Jack swapped the Black Cats for the black and white of Newcastle United and his bright start on Tyneside saw him earn a provisional call up to the senior England squad for a friendly against Norway in August 2014.
He scored his first goal for Newcastle United against Everton at St. James’ Park in December 2014.
Part of the Magpies side relegated from the top flight in 2016, Jack helped the club to achieve an immediate return to the Premier League as champions during the 2016/17 season.
Despite not featuring for the first team during the 2017/18 season, Jack impressed on loan at Championship side Nottingham Forest during the second half of the campaign.
