Newcastle United defender Fabian Schar has admitted that he is a big fan of Manchester City and Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

The Swiss defender has become a hit on Tyneside since joining from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, scoring five goals in 36 appearances across all competitions.

Speaking on Football Daily's 'Unfiltered', Schar said of De Bruyne: "To be honest, I am a big fan of him.

"He is a fantastic player and his passing ability, how many he assists he gives in a game is crazy.

"The positions he takes on the pitch, he is always hard to defend against. In between the lines and you don't know exactly what you should do."

Newcastle return to action in the Premier League on Sunday, when they play host to Manchester United.
