Incredible new Federico Fernandez stat proves why he MUST be offered new deal by Mike Ashley

According to some outstanding new stats, Federico Fernandez averages more blocks and clearances per game than ANY other player outside the Premier League’s ‘big 6’.

The 30-year-old – whose contract expires next summer – has made an average of 9.57 blocks and clearances per 90 minutes played this season; a total that leaves him above the likes of Aston Villa’s Tyron Mings, Wolves’ Willy Bolly and Bournemouth’s Steve Cook.

As brilliant Twitter page @TheOther14 highlight below, NUFC duo Ciaran Clark and Jamaal Lascelles also make the list, but the in-form Argentine is way out in front:

Just about every Newcastle United fans will be aware just how good Fernandez has been this season, with him not only defending admirably but weighing in with 2 goals and 2 assists, however it’s crucial that Mike Ashley rewards his good form with a new deal if he’s to stay at St James’ Park beyond this season.

The former Swansea skipper will leave on a free next summer if nothing changes, but it would be absolutely criminal to lose a player of his class, with him arguably our most consistent defender.

Time to reward his brilliant form with a new deal!
