Dubravka signs 6-year contract

Martin Dubravka has signed a six-year deal to keep him at Newcastle United, the club have announced.

The 30-year-old goalkeeper has been with the Magpies since January 2018, initially on loan, and has started every Premier League game since making his debut.

Dubravka has kept 17 clean sheets in his 59 league appearances during his time at Newcastle.

The Slovakian international has been among the busiest goalkeepers through nine games of the Premier League season, averaging three saves a game for Steve Bruce’s side, who currently reside in the relegation zone on goal difference.

However, Martin Dubravka was happy to sign a six-year deal at St James’ Park, telling NUFC TV on Thursday:

“It is an amazing feeling.

 

“I have to say that it feels like time has flown. It’s been almost two years and I’ve found great people here who I can call friends.

 

“I’ve enjoyed my time here and I’m very glad that I can stay here for another six years.”

Newcastle United have Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot in reserve to Dubravka, neither of whom have a great deal of Premier League experience between them.

The Magpies host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Sunday. The West Midlands club will be coming back from their trip to Slovakia against Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League this evening.
