Football Insider verdict:
Newcastle have taken their time but if this medical goes okay too, they’ll have completed deals for two players right at the end of the January window. That’s a bonus for fans and in Slimani they’ve got a player who can score goals, and in Dubravka they’ve got someone who can help keep them out at the other end. The 29-year-old keeper has bags of experience both with Sparta Prague and on the international stage where he’s made eight appearances for Slovakia.
