He wouldn't play for Newcastle United if he was as good defensively as many make out, bearing in mind how good he is on the ball and bringing the ball out from the back. His positioning is his main weakness, but in Rafa's system and in particular in a three that doesn't really matter that much when defensively you have a back 5 more so more often than not there is cover there. It's no coincide that pretty much all centre backs that have had a long run in the side under Rafa have looked excellent - the system.

I think he's great, and a properly functioning club would be looking to offer him a new deal now as he's only got another season after this one. But some of the things you read, putting him up there with Van Dijk etc. (particularly on Twitter) is just embarrassing.

Second highest number of interceptions in the league thus far, yet not a good defender according to some on here  :)

Nobody contends that isn't his standout defensive attribute.

Yes, but I don’t think he’s particularly weak in other areas too - I feel his overall defensive game is pretty underrated, which is understandable given how good he is offensively.

Agree, he’s not Maldini but think his defensive work is under rated because of what he can do on the ball.

Again, I'm not saying he's exceptional defensively, but a few of you were saying he was poor defensively a week ago and I just don't think that's true. He's a more than capable defender in the Premier League.

Looking at his record - very decent amount of goals for a centre back like.

Me either. He's absolutely brilliant and one of the classiest defenders we've had for a long time.

Swiss God!

I'm sure he's eyeing a move elsewhere - and I don't blame him.

New deal has to be the main priority for the club for this guy.

Only way he gets a new deal is if it means Ashley can get more money by selling him

It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.

I think we’ll offer him a new deal, with a promise to sell if we get a bid of over £20m, or he’ll stay and go for around £12m in the summer with only a year left.

Nah if we refused to sell Longstaff for £25m, we won’t let Schar go for less than that. He’s probably our best player alongside Dubravka, the club will know that and value him accordingly. £30m+.
