Newcastle has some incredible players, but Martin Dubravka has proven to be one of the most talented men in our team. Therefore, it is not surprising that, according to his representative on the Chronicle, a new contract is being discussed.
According to Chronicle, Dubravka's representative said, "We are beginning to negotiate an improved contract."
At the moment, a deal is far from complete and other interests may affect the magpies, but it is extremely important that the goalkeeper at St. James's Park be bound long term.
After all, he has proved in this term as a pretty brilliant player. There are no obvious weaknesses in his game. Strong shooting distances, decent air capabilities and good quality. The ball at his feet helps him claim his place as Newcastle goalkeeper.
His statistics speak for themselves (according to the official website of the Premier League); 108 savings, 1 penalty saved, 44 high claims, 21 clearances. Not to forget, with 13 zeroes, he has helped to extend our talented backline with yet another level of defense.
But it's not just his talent. What impressed us in recent months was his resilience. Especially against Tottenham, he had a bit of wobbling, and people could easily turn against him. He reacted well and bounced back; and that's the kind of character you expect from your goalkeeper.
He may be 30 years old, but Dubravka seems to be finding his best form only now, so you think he's at the highest level for a while. When this time is spent in Newcastle, that's fantastic news for us.
