Newcastle should run rule over 21-year-old following recent goalkeeping mishap

Martin Dubravka has looked less than convincing of late.

Newcastle United drew 1-1 with Wolves last night to earn a valuable point in their quest to retain their Premier League status.

The Magpies were denied all three points in stoppage time when Wily Boly headed home a cruel equaliser for the hosts.

Debate ensued as to whether or not Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka was fouled by Boly in the build-up.

Replays proved inconclusive and the debate rages on.

One thing that is for sure, however, is that the Slovakian looked less than convincing in coming for the cross in the first place.

The 30-year-old has largely been a safe pair of hands since arriving at St. James’ Park last season.

Following his latest cock-up, it might be time for Newcastle to add some stern competition for the gloves.

Given that the Magpies aren’t notorious for spending an absolute fortune, Dean Henderson could be a logical recruit for Benitez to consider.


The 21-year-old is on loan at Sheffield United from Manchester United and there is a feeling that he could leave Old Trafford in the summer.

According to ESPN, several European clubs are watching the England u-21 stopper ahead of summer swoops, including Arsenal and Juventus.

Henderson has kept 10 clean sheets for the Blades this season.

The fact that he wouldn’t cost a fortune would be a big plus for Newcastle and his chances of first-team football would be higher at St. James’ Park.

Dubravka will probably maintain the gloves for the time being as Newcastle aren’t blessed with loads of experience in reserve.

A few more errors similar to last night, however, and the Magpies could be forced to look elsewhere.
