Some great news has emerged from Fabrizio Romano this afternoon, who confirms that Bruno Guimaraes is now ‘on the verge’ of signing a new deal at Newcastle United.
He reports that ‘positive secret talks’ have taken place over the past 10 days, but a breakthrough has been found and a deal is now ‘close.’
The Brazilian has been expected to sign a contract extension for several months now, yet it emerged over the summer that talks had stalled. Not only that, Spanish outlet AS claimed yesterday that we’d rejected a £100m from Liverpool over the final days of the window, adding to speculation surrounding his future.
However, news that he’s now close to signing a new improved deal will come as a huge relief to Eddie Howe and Newcastle fans.
After a slow start to the season for the midfielder, let’s hope this allows full focus on matters on the pitch; starting with next Saturday’s clash with Brentford.
