MARTIN DUBRAVKA insists he is satisfied with life on Tyneside after constantly being asked if he will be leaving Newcastle United this month.

The Magpies’ highly-rated goalkeeper has impressed throughout his time in the North-East since moving, initially on loan, from Sparta Prague a year ago.

Champions League clubs keeping an eye on his progress and Italian champions Juventus have been credited with the strongest interest.

But Dubravka – due to be recalled at Chelsea tomorrow – is not paying any attention because he is in no rush to leave.

The 29-year-old was a key figure in transforming Newcastle’s fortunes in the second half of last season when they ended up finishing tenth.

Dubravka has also impressed this term too, helping Rafa Benitez’s side to stay out of the bottom three and it will be hoped he can continue to do so in the remaining five months of the campaign.

Crucially, he wants to stay and ensure Benitez’s side do stay in the top-flight for a further year, even if there is a lot of uncertainty off the pitch at St James’ because of Mike Ashley’s ongoing attempts to sell up.

“I am very happy here. To be honest I am completely focused on my job here and that is what I am concentrating on right now,” said Dubravka.

“I know a lot of people have been asking me if I will stay or not, but I am happy now and I am not thinking about any other club.

“For me I am just focused 100 per cent on doing my job for Newcastle United and making sure we stay in the Premier League.”

Ashley is still pushing to move the club on and Peter Kenyon’s attempts to form a group of investors capable of buying him out remain ongoing too.

It is hoped on both sides that it will materialise but that is unlikely to happen in time to significantly boost Benitez’s spending money this month.

That has left the Spanish boss frustrated because he was hoping for reinforcements to boost the chances of survival.

Paraguayan playmaker Miguel Almiron remains on the radar but Benitez has become disappointed with the lack of progress on that front. It is understood that a £25m transfer fee and the player’s wages are the two big obstacles.

The Newcastle squad accepts new players are required. Dubravka said: “We are not focused on these things because we cannot do anything about that. We, as players, are just focused on our job. We try to train well, listen to what the gaffer says, and try to do it on the pitch. Then everything else is up to the manager and the club to see if they bring in players.

“We will see what is going to happen but what we have to do as players is to keep fighting for the points.”

Almiron is due back for pre-season with Atlanta on January 14 when former Holland defender Frank de Boer will take over.

He will want a quick decision made.
