Newcastle United extend Federico Fernandez contract


Newcastle announced that they have extended the contract of Federico Fernandez until the end of next season.

Fernandez joined the club in August 2018 from Swansea and at 31 years of age, has taken part in 25 matches this season scoring twice. Soeaking on the official Newcastle United website, here’s what coach Steve Bruce had to say:

“It’s really good news to get Fede tied up. He has had a great season and richly deserves this recognition.

“He is a great professional. He trains and works incredibly hard for the team and he continues to be a positive influence around the place. We’re delighted to have him.”

Federico has played 31 matches for the Argentina national team, scoring three times while also being part of the Argentina team which reached the 2014 World Cup final.


  1. It actually pains to see a historical club like Boca being dominanted by Colombians and paraguyans ,damn afa should introduce a rule of including of minimum 3 under 24 players from Argentina in starting 11 for every Argentine club or else national team will be badly affected
    And Heinze should not have left Velez ,had he continued he could have won silverware like league or copa libertedos next year because of continuity

    • true every other top league in the world have a strict youth policy which the clubs should maintain thats why leagues like france,england and portugal soo many young talents are sprouted all of a sudden

    • heinze left due to disagreement with board. They sold vargas, dominguez,gimenez with no replacements. Plus he wanted a striker for very long that was not satisfied. They wanted to sell almada earlier also and he intervened. Now he wants to go to board with more support. Current rumors are it is going to be alianza lima.

      • i hope he better join an european club or a brazilian club because any other place is a step down.we need more argentine managers in europe so that more argentine talent can be exploited and put to gud use in europe

    • Yes but he does not suit Argentina playing style.He will be good for team like Uruguay.He is a good player that is why Newcastle extended his contract and Newcastle is known for their defenders.
