Matz Sels

Position:
Goalkeeper
Date signed:
1st July 2016

An imposing figure between the posts, Matz joined Newcastle United from Belgian side Gent in summer 2016 - fresh from being named Professional Goalkeeper of the Year in his homeland.

Born in Lint, just south of Antwerp, Matz began his professional career at neighbouring Lierse SK and became the club’s first choice ‘keeper in 2012.

By the end of 2013, he moved west to sign for KAA Gent and it was at the Arteveldestadion that his career truly took off.

Helping the club to become Belgian champions for the first time in the 2014/15 season, he played in the Champions League during the 2015/16 campaign and saved an Alexandre Lacazette penalty on his debut in the competition.

Matz joined Newcastle United in June 2016 and signed a long-term deal at St. James’ Park.

In June 2017, he returned to Belgium on a season-long loan with RSC Anderlecht.
