Miguel Almiron has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract at Newcastle United.
The Paraguayan attacking midfielder who joined from Atlanta United in January 2019 signs the new deal while he is enjoying his best season at St James’ Park.
Almiron has scored 10 Premier League goals in 2022/23 and won the EA SPORTS Player of the Month and Budweiser Goal of the Month for October 2022.

"I felt at home at Newcastle from the beginning,” he told nufc.co.uk. "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.”
The good news of Almiron's new contract comes as Newcastle prepare for Sunday's EFL Cup final against Manchester United, with the Magpies hoping to win a first major trophy since the 1955 FA Cup.
Newcastle are next in Premier League action when they travel to Manchester City on 4 March.
