The Slovakia international made the move to Old Trafford in September to join Tom Heaton in providing competition for first-choice goalkeeper David de Gea.
Dubravka made just two appearances for United, both coming in EFL Cup in victories over Aston Villa and more recently Burnley. He has not featured on the substitutes’ bench for United in their past two Premier League games and has now been recalled by Newcastle.
Both clubs confirmed the news on their official websites on Sunday, as the transfer window officially opened. The Red Devils put out a statement on their official website stating:
“Martin Dubravka has been recalled from his season-long loan to Manchester United by his parent club Newcastle United.”
“We would like to thank Martin for his contribution during his time with our club, and wish him all the best for the future.”
The decision was made by Newcastle, who are in prime contention for a top-four spot in the Premier League. Dubravka is now expected to provide back-up to Nick Pope at high-flying Newcastle, who are two points better off than United having played a game more.
He has made 130 appearances for Newcastle since joining from Sparta Prague in January 2018 and was voted the club’s Player of the Year in the 2019-20 campaign.
