Newcastle United appear ​set to sign Martin Dubravka on a permanent deal this summer after the goalkeeper's successful loan spell at St James' Park in 2017/18.


Rafa Benitez signed the Slovakian international on deadline day in January on a six-month loan deal from Croatian side Sparta Prague, and the stopper has impressed since his arrival becoming the number one choice keeper.

It didn't take him long to win the fans' trust after a fine display on his debut in a ​1-0 win over ​Manchester United, and he hasn't looked back since.


​In the 12 games he played for ​Newcastle, he conceded just 11 goals and helped his side finish 10th in the ​Premier League. Now, the Magpies look all set to activate a clause in his contract, making the deal a permanent one for just £4m, once the summer transfer window opens in July.


The news comes much to the delight of the Newcastle fans...
