The goalkeeper also received praises from several media outlets and fans…

Well, according to Goal.com, Jan Oblak will not be signing any new deal for now because he wants to play in the Premier League and Newcastle are looking set to secure his services.

However, any move to join the Mapies may face opposition because he wants to play for a team that is competing for big titles.
