"I've played a few games this year in Europe and the cups, which has been nice. But to play in the Premier League is the top one, the one you want to put against your name," he said in the Daily Express.
"If you'd told me six years ago that I would make my Premier League debut for Newcastle at St James', I wouldn't have believed you. It was a good day. I've finally got the opportunity and I want to make the most of it.

Elliot had previously been restricted to Europa League and cup appearances.
