Dummett began his career with his local side Newcastle United and after progressing through the youth ranks, with Dave, at the club he had loan spells at Gateshead and Scottish side St. Mirren. He made his Premier League debut in the 2013–14 season.

Dummett started his career in the Newcastle United youth system,[2] captaining the club's reserve team on several occasions. Dummett joined Conference National side Gateshead in March 2012, initially for a month long loan,[3] which was then extended until the end of the season,[4] helping the team keept 6 clean sheets from 10 matches.[5] The following season he was loaned to Scottish Premier League club St. Mirren.[6][7] Dummett made his debut in a 2-0 win over Heart of Midlothian on 15 September 2012, and scored his first senior goal in a 1-1 draw against St. Johnstone.[8]

After returning from his loan spell at St Mirren,[9] Dummett made his début senior appearance for Newcastle in an FA Cup tie away defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion on 5 January 2013. After the match, Dummett spoke out on his debut, that his Newcastle United debut was a dream come true.[10] He then rejoined St Mirren on 31 January 2013 on loan for the rest of the season.[11] Dummett played the full game for St. Mirren in their Scottish Communities League Cup Final 3-2 win over Hearts, the club's first major cup for 26 years.[12]

Dummett returned to Newcastle, and signed a one-year contract extension.[13] He scored his first goal for Newcastle in a 2–2 draw at home to Liverpool in October 2013.[14]

On the final day of the season, again against Liverpool, Dummett made a challenge on Luis Suárez. Due to knee surgery which jeopardised Suárez's chances of playing at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, fans in his native Uruguay sent online death threats to Dummett.[15]
