There’s a report in the Mirror today that Newcastle goalkeeper is attracting attention again from Juventus, and other big clubs have been scouting the talented Newcastle United goalkeeper.
The Mirror (Simon Bird) reports that Dubravka has become “a rock” for Newcastle both on and off the field.
As soon as Martin arrived on the final day of last January’s transfer window he has been ultra professional and confident – and he has played brilliantly for Newcastle.

He has now played 32 times for the club and has been the first choice ever since he arrived.
Rafa thinks highly of his £4M capture from Sparta Prague in the summer and had this to say in the MIrror report:
“If he continues to do well, it is good for us. If he attracts interest, it means he is doing well, positive, doing well — but also negative, because it means they are attacking a lot!
“He’s an important player for us; not just because of the saves that he is making.”
“But because of his character and his attitude, too. He is very professional, he is very positive.”
“So he’s someone that is always good for any team and is a key voice in the dressing room.”
It’s true he is so consistent he can be taken for granted. It’s not easy to have a very good keeper.”
“But when you have one them it’s important.”
Dubravka’s first game for us was the 1-0 win at home to Manchester United with Dubravka magnificent in the Newcastle goal throughout that game.
We will hope for the same tonight against the Red Devils as Dubravka continues to make a big name for himself in the Newcastle goal.
Howay The Lads!!
