The Mail is reporting today that Fabian Schar of Deportivo de La Coruna is on his way to Newcastle to have a medical and all being well to sign along the dotted line for the club.
He would be an excellent signing for Newcastle at only £3M which is the relegation release clause in his contract, and if we can sign this player, it will be another bargain buy for the club.
Fabian has lots of experience and has 42 caps (7 goals) for Switzerland and played well for his country in the recently completed World Cup in Russia.
Fabian Schar of Deportivo – traveling to Newcastle for medical
The Mail reported yesterday that Schar was due at Newcastle yesterday but no news yet of the center-back being seen in Newcastle.
But make no mistake about it – this will be a terrific signing for Newcastle, and he will be pushing hard for a starting position in Newcastle’s defense next season.
He hasn’t come to Newcastle to sit on the bench.
In a disappointing transfer window so far, when owner Mike Ashley has again held funds back from the manager – getting Ki Sung-yueng and Fabian Scar through the door for a total of £3M is simply brilliant.
Well done Rafa Benitez.
There’s a lot of disturbing news recently about how Rafa will leave Newcastle at the end of his contract next year.
But if we can get Fabian Schar and Japanese international striker Yoshinori Muto through the door in the next few days things will start to look up.
Howay The Lads!!
