Newcastle made a really poor start to the game on Saturday at Vicarage Road and if it hadn’t been for some brilliant saves from our goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, things could have been a lot worse.
Dubravka was one of the few Newcastle players who were awake in the first half, and at 2-0 Paul Dummett gave away a penalty for a clumsy challenge.
But the Slovakian International made a wonderful double save to keep out Troy Deeney’s penalty attempt.
Our understanding is the loan fee for the 29-year-old goalkeeper is €2M and the clause in his contract is an option to buy for €4M.
Martin Dubravka – making a brilliant double save from Deeney penalty
Dubravka has been outstanding for Newcastle ever since his first game when we beat Manchester United at home 1-0 and we’re almost 100% certain he will be the first signing for Newcastle this summer.
He’s really a bargain at €4M.
And well done to Dubravka for his heroics at Watford on Saturday.
