Fabian Schar Signs Newcastle Utd Contract Extension To 2025

Schar has made 169 appearances and scored 11 goals since signing from Deportivo La Coruna for a nominal fee in the summer of 2018.

The 32-year-old Switzerland international would have seen his previous contract expire at the end of this season.

A club statement said: “Newcastle United are pleased to announce that defender Fabian Schar has extended his contract at St. James’ Park until the summer of 2025.

Schar, who has been capped 78 times by his country, said: “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.

“Playing for this team where I feel so comfortable with all my team-mates and with the coaching staff feels really like a family for me, so I’m really grateful to stay here a bit longer and hopefully to have some more exciting times.”

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe added: “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.”
