Newcastle are closing in on the signature of Swiss international Fabian Schär after triggering a £3m release clause in his contract.
The current Deportivo La Coruna defender was one of his country’s standout performers in Russia and Rafa Benitez has wasted no time in trying to secure the services of the 26-year-old following the news that Florian Lejeune could be set for a significant spell on the sidelines. The French centre-back missed the 2-2 draw with Hull on Tuesday, and although tests are ongoing, there are growing fears on Tyneside that he may have suffered a "serious" knee injury. With Chancel Mbemba off to FC Porto, the Newcastle defence does require reinforcements with only Jamaal Lascelles and Ciaran Clark as experienced options to cover centrally. Schär is considered a tough tackling, no nonsense defender who picked up 10 cautions in his 25 La Liga appearances last term and at £3m he is worth a punt, even if it is only to boost squad numbers.
