Newcastle fans react to £3m Schar deal

Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as Fabian Schar has joined the Magpies on a three-year deal.

It seems Mike Ashley has finally found his wallet, as Newcastle have secured the signing of Switzerland’s Schar.

The 26 year-old played a huge part in guiding Switzerland out of a tough group in Russia, forming a dominant partnership at the back with Manuel Akanji.

He signs from Deportivo for a fee of around £3m, presumably to replace Chancel Mbemba.

Newcastle have already signed Martin Dúbravka, Ki-Sung Yeung and Kenedy, so this summer is now just a couple more decent captures away from actually being a successful window.

Rafael Benitez is crying out for a new goalscorer, which looks to be Japan’s Yoshinori Muto.

Schar could actually be thrown right into the first team on Tyneside, as there are real concerns that Florian Lejeune could miss a lengthy spell with a knee injury.

Either way, fans are just delighted they’re finally spending, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
