Almiron signs new three-and-a-half-year contract at Newcastle

Miguel Almiron has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal at Newcastle.

The Paraguayan is Newcastle's top scorer this season with 10 goals in all competitions.

The 29-year-old recently made his 150th appearance for the Magpies, and said: "I am very happy to sign a new contract with Newcastle. 

"I felt at home at Newcastle from the beginning. I've felt very welcomed and I feel like part of the family, so I am very happy to stay here and I am going to keep giving everything on the pitch to thank the people of Newcastle. 

"The truth is that I've worked really hard since I came to Newcastle to improve my level and to be where I am at the moment, and I also thank the staff and my team-mates, who have helped me a lot during these four years. I think this is a reward for that hard work and I am very happy.

Toon head coach Eddie Howe said: “Miggy is a hugely important part of our squad on and off the pitch and I’m very pleased to see his contribution acknowledged in this way. 

“I’m delighted we’ll continue our journey together.”
