Fabian Schär

Position:
Defender
Date signed:
26th July 2018

A ball-playing Swiss international defender, Schär signed for Newcastle United from Deportivo de La Coruña in July 2018.

His career began with hometown club Wil 1900 before linking up with UEFA Champions League regulars Basel in 2012, where he helped the RotBlau to a hat-trick of Swiss Super League titles.

He played at St. James' Park for the first time in 2012, representing his country against Gabon in the Olympic Games.

Spells with Hoffenheim and Deportivo followed and after joining the Magpies permanently, he bagged his first goals for the Magpies in January 2019, netting an unlikely brace in a 3-0 Premier League victory over Cardiff City.

Stylish and solid, Schär has become a key part of Eddie Howe's squad since the head coach's arrival in 2021, with his centre back partnership with Sven Botman crucial to United's terrific 2022/23 campaign, which saw the club finish fourth and qualify for the Champions League.
