Newcastle fans desperate for Dubravka to stay

Martin Dubravka’s January move to Newcastle United did not exactly capture the attention of the club’s supporters.

Indeed, little was known about the 29-year-old ahead of his arrival at St James’ Park on transfer deadline day at the start of 2018.

Newcastle acquired his services on loan from Sparta Prague, and it did not take long for the stopper to make an impression, with his debut coming in the club’s 1-0 win over Manchester United on February 11.

Dubravka has continued to impress between the sticks for Newcastle, and kept another clean sheet against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.

There was one outstanding save from the Slovakia international against the Blues when he tipped an Olivier Giroud effort over the crossbar.

Dubravka’s future is still unclear, although it is understood that Newcastle have the chance to make the loan move permanent this summer, and the club’s supporters are absolutely desperate for that to occur.
