Newcastle ‘to offer red-hot Miguel Almiron new long-term contract’ after stunning form following Jack Grealish taunt

RED-HOT Miguel Almiron is set to be offered a new Newcastle contract, according to reports.

The Paraguayan attacker, 28, was tipped to exit the club in the summer after failing to live up to his £25million price tag.

Miguel Almiron’s form looks set to be rewarded with a new contract at St James’ Park

But ever since Jack Grealish’s derogatory mocking during Manchester City’s title celebrations, he has been in scintillating form for the Magpies.

Almiron is already up to six goals in 12 Premier League appearances this season – matching his tally for the last two campaigns combined.

That includes the winners in Newcastle’s last two matches, against Everton and Tottenham.

The 47-cap international has scored five in October alone – as many as Grealish has managed in 14 months for City.

Now The Telegraph state the St James’ Park club want to tie him down to a new deal.

That would see Almiron handed an improved pay packet and likely extend his stay for an extra two years – by which time he will be 32.

His current deal, the original contract signed in 2019, runs until 2024.

But his impressive form means the Toon are concerned rival clubs may try and poach the ex-Atlanta United star when the transfer window reopens in January.


Eddie Howe is getting the best out of Almiron both with and without the ball after his struggles under Rafa Benitez and Steve Bruce.

The addition of Bruno Guimaraes plus Joelinton’s renaissance in midfield and significant investment in the defence have been major boosts for Newcastle, too.

And striker Callum Wilson has already put pen to paper on a new contract since the Saudi owners took over.
