Newcastle United loanee Martin Dubravka had a quite simply excellent debut performance against Manchester United on Sunday.

The goalkeeper made his eagerly-anticipated debut for the club against the Red Devils and was able to pull off a terrific display, making a number of impressive saves to help his side to a 1-0 win.

Dubravka has shown promising signs in his early days with the Magpies and, if the Mirror are to be believed, the club are already keen to secure a permanent deal for the 29-year-old.

The Sparta Prague goalkeeper joined for a loan fee of £1.2m near the end of January, but Newcastle were also enabled the choice to make the deal permanent for just £4m in the summer.

This option is, though, applicable only if Dubravka plays in six of the club’s remaining 11 encounters.

Newcastle have evidently been impressed by the experienced shot stopper and according to the report, they will happily pay a total of £5.2m to land Dubravka on a permanent basis.
