Schar puts pen to paper on new deal with Toon Army

Newcastle United have moved quickly to sign Fabian Schar to a new deal, and the Swiss international has happily put pen to paper on a contract until 2025 at St James' Park. There had been a possibility that Schar could depart on a free transfer, but the centre-back has only eyes for one club and Eddie Howe will be absolutely delighted to tie Fabian Schar down to a fresh agreement.

Schar said of the deal: "I've said it a lot of times, but I feel really at home here.

"I feel so comfortable living in Newcastle; I love the city and I love playing for the club and the incredible fans. I can't say enough how much I love them, and how much their support means to me.

With 78 caps to his name, the Swiss has a ton of experience that Eddie Howe hopes to call upon in order to reverse the club's ailing recent fortunes. The Newcastle manager quipped:  "Fabian has been excellent for us. Since I've come to the football club, he's been a model of consistency and a big part of our success.

"He's defended very well but he's hugely talented with the ball as well, so we're delighted that he's extended his time here."
