Newcastle’s star goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has been talking to the Northern Echo, and he says he is 100% fit and ready for the Premier League resumption.
We are at home a week on Sunday to Sheffield United in 9 days time, and we’ll see how the lads can do over the final 9 league games of the season.

The Slovakian goalkeeper has just signed a new deal through June 2025 an was a bargain buy from Sparta Prague for just £4M two years ago after first spending half of the previous season on loan to us.
This is what Martin Dubravka (shown above in training this week) has said in the Northern Echo today:
“I feel all right,”
“Obviously, I’ve done different movements so the first week for me was strange. I was not sure if my knee was 100% repaired.”
“But it is now, and I don’t even need to think about it. I am glad that I am 100%, and ready to be on the pitch.”
“Finally, we’re back and hopefully, we are ready for the games.”
Dubravka did suffer a severe knee injury in our last game – the terrific 1-0 win at St. Mary’s Stadium against Southampton.
The injury could have kept him out for the rest of the season, but over the break, he has fully recovered, which is great news for Newcastle.
We are looking forward to our first game back, which is a week on Sunday, and a win against the Blades would be excellent.
