A Newcastle United fan using online dating app Tinder was mistaken for Magpies star Paul Dummett by someone he matched with.
His profile included a photo of himself posing alongside the defender outside St James’s Park, leading to the confusion which elicited a response from the player on Twitter.
Plenty more fish in the sea mate 🤷🏼♂️👊🏼 https://t.co/t9kckkoUr5

The confused party replied to him:
Babe thought you were the blonde guy
I’m so sorry ha x
Born in Newcastle, Dummett made twenty appearances for Steve Bruce’s side as they went on to finish 13th in last season’s Premier League table.
