Newcastle Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka Signs New Contract

Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has signed a new six-year contract.

This new deal will extend his stay at St James’ Park until June 2025.

Dubravka joined The Magpies from Sparta Prague on loan in January 2018 and signed on a permanent deal for a fee of £3.6 million six months later.

The 30-year-old has made 59 Premier League appearances, conceding 73 goals and keeping 17 clean sheets.

He was also voted North East Writers’ Association Player of the Year in 2018.

Speaking to NUFC TV, Dubravka said, “It’s an amazing feeling. I have to say it feels like time has flown. It’s been almost two years and I’ve found great people here who I can call friends and I’m very glad that I can stay here for another six years.”

Manager Steve Bruce also added, “Martin’s been absolutely fantastic since the day he arrived and he’s hugely important on the pitch and in the dressing room.”

Newcastle, who are currently 18th, face Wolverhampton Wanderers next in the Premier League at St James’ Park on Sunday.
