And he’s more excited about his overnight stay in an airport hostel than Saturday’s League One play-off final.

The purchasing manager, 33, said: “I can’t wait now that I’ve booked it. I pack my shorts and take a little vacation out of it.

“I’ll have a few pints and go for a walk in Menorca.”

He added: “A boy I know paid £260 for a return journey to London by train and British Airways wanted £161.99 for a direct flight.”

James will depart Newcastle on Thursday at 4pm and land back in the UK at 6pm the next day.

A Good Samaritan has offered to take him from Stansted to London, where he will be staying with a relative on Friday night.

His Stadium of Light heroes meet Wycombe in the final thanks to a late Patrick Roberts goal in the semis.

And James even organized a free ride home after the game.

The savvy father-of-two wowed his fiancée Victoria Stewart, 34, by showing her the savings from his trip ahead of their wedding in August.

He said: “She thinks I’m crazy.”
