Prague - Newcastle United have completed the permanent signing of goalkeeper Martin Dubravka from Sparta Prague.

Sparta and Newcastle confirmed the transfer on Wednesday after the Premier League club activated an option to sign the 29-year-old Slovak, who joined the Magpies on loan in January.

Newcastle says Dubravka signed a contract until June 2022.

The goalkeeper had an impressive debut for Newcastle in a 1-0 victory over Manchester United and played 12 league matches overall.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benítez says: "We're delighted to finalize the permanent signing of Martin to Newcastle United today. Ever since he arrived with us on loan he has shown a fantastic attitude and great work ethic, and of course we have been very impressed with his performances for us on the pitch last season."

Dubravka has played 10 internationals for Slovakia.
