Newcastle United have signed Switzerland defender Fabian Schar from Deportivo La Coruna on a three-year deal.

According to reports, Newcastle activated a £3 million release clause in the 26-year-old's contract.

Schar made 25 league appearances for Depor last season after joining the club from Hoffenheim.

"I hope to start training with the team soon and I'm looking forward to everything that's coming," he said in a statement. "At the moment, I just want to get started."

Schar appeared in three of Switzerland's four World Cup matches, helping his team progress from the group stage before missing their round-of-16 defeat by Sweden through suspension.

The centre-back becomes the Newcastle's fourth recruit of the summer as manager Rafa Benitez continues to operate on a tight budget.
