Newcastle United confirm that defender Satka has found a new club
Tuesday afternoon has seen Newcastle United announce that defender Lubomir Satka has found a new club.
The 21 was revealed earlier this month as one of a number of players who wouldn’t be offered a new contract when their current deals run out at the end of June 2017.
Haris Vuckic has now signed with FC Twente in Holland, whilst Satka has now signed a three year contract with FC DAC 1904.
The central defender had spent time on loan at the Slovakian club recently.
Vurnon Anita and Sammy Ameobi are still yet to sign on elsewhere, whilst NUFC said that they were trying to agree a short-term extension with Yoan Gouffran, the Frenchman another due to leave the club in a few days time.
Along with others such as Haris Vuckic, Lubomir Satka is yet another young player recruited from abroad who has been nowhere near the level needed to succeed at St James Park.
Many fans would prefer to see an emphasis on trying to develop players from the UK and especially from the north east, although Rafa Benitez has said he is committed to bringing in young talent from around the world.
Already the United boss has brought in teenagers from numerous countries including, Spain, South Africa and Finland.
Newcastle United official announcement:
Newcastle United defender Lubomir Satka has agreed a deal with Slovakian club FC DAC 1904.
The 21-year-old, whose Magpies contract runs out at the end of June, will join the Fortuna Liga outfit on a deal which will keep him at the DAC Arena for the next three seasons, with option of a further one.
The move will bring to an end Satka’s five-year spell at St. James’ Park.
The Slovakian centre half joined United from MFK Dubnica in 2012, and progressed through the United ranks before making his first team debut in an FA Cup tie at Leicester City in January 2015.
During his time at Newcastle, Satka was a regular in the Magpies’ second-string, while he also spent time out on loan at then-League Two side York City, as well as enjoying a successful stint with DAC during the second half of last season.
