Martin Dubravka Signs for Newcastle United

Recommended Posts

Quote

Rafael Benitez has expressed his interest in making the signings of Newcastle loanees Kenedy and Martin Dubravka permanent over the summer.

Winger Kenedy and goalkeeper Dubravka have both impressed since joining the Magpies from Chelsea and Sparta Prague respectively during the January transfer window.

The duo starred during a four-game Premier League winning streak across March and April, which all but ensured Newcastle's Premier League status for another season.

Dubravka should be straight forward. €6m is the fee agreed in the loan deal.

Kenedy seemed to be saying goodbye when we played West Brom at home (his last SJP game) so I don't think we will see him again tbh.

that's an absolute bargain for Dubravka if that fee is true. Gotta snap him up at that price.

€2m loan fee and €4m to make it permanent was the deal. So €6m in total.

We've obviously got to take that, he's proven himself at Premier League level.

Sounds like Martin Dubravka is pretty much a done deal at four million. Seems like a bargain based on his initial form. Fair play to Carr and Ashley on this one.

Kenedy was more than okay in his little minutes he had for the club, obviously in a team he is the starter he can shine. Like him a lot even tough after his China antics it went downhill for him. I even think Conte was planing to use him more before it. He will probably make a career for himself elsewhere.

As expected we have signed Dubravka.

Alan Carr's dad left the club ages ago.

Then Ashley deserves even more credit.

Don't worry he paid Sports Direct £2.5m from the clubs accounts in the last financial year and increased rent to him on the land the clubs buildings are on ten fold. He has taken plenty of "credit"

Bargain signing. There'd have been no excuse not to sign him after that low fee was negotiated in his loan and he clearly performed very well.

Still think Newcastle need more serious investment if they want to kick on to where they were in the Freddie Shepherd era (although they'll want to invest more wisely than they'd done then).

Rafa's done well to get that squad to 10th, but how long can his tactics have those players punching above their weight?
