Loads of Newcastle fans have been reacting to the latest transfer news, as the Magpies are eyeing a £3m swoop for Switzerland international Fabian Schar.
According to Lee Ryder from The Chronicle, Newcastle are eyeing up the release clause of Deportivo’s Schar, which stands at £3m.
The 26 year-old centre back was one of the most highly rated young defenders in the world when he broke into the first team at FC Basel, but his career has stagnated since leaving the Swiss club.
He joined Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in 2015, before moving to Deportivo last summer, where he scored twice in 25 La Liga appearances.
The 26 year-old has 42 Switzerland caps, and has scored seven times for his country, a pretty impressive hit rate for a centre back.
He featured alongside the highly rated Manuel Akanji in Switzerland’s impressive World Cup side, though he struggled massively against the Magpies’ Mitrovic in the win over Serbia, as the towering striker won eight aerial duels against the pair.
Chancel Mbemba has now confirmed his move to Porto, so it would be pretty good business getting Schar in as a replacement and turning a tidy profit.

Don't get me wrong, our approach this summer is uninspiring, but can we stop acting like potential £6m and £3m deals for Bryan and Schar would be bad signings?
They're both worth much more and people would probably be raving about them if it was £16m and £13m! #NUFC

Are they good signings like? A centre back relegated with a £3 million release clause and a left back from Bristol City!! You must be easily pleased! I call it the Mike Ashley effect..

They’re good signings. No doubt about it. Doesn’t change anything at all with Ashley though.

Don’t care what they cost as long as they bring quality to the team and squad

Wow. £3m for a defender relegated last season or a loan deal. For a defender relegated last season.
