Newcastle United and Miguel Almiron reached an agreement on Friday for a contract review of the Paraguay international’s deal with the Magpies, now extended until the summer of 2026. Almirón has signed a three-and-a-half contract to remain at Newcastle.

The news came on Friday afternoon, around 48 hours before the Magpies' game against Manchester United at Wembley on Sunday in the Carabao Cup final.

Almirón, who has been with the organization since he arrived from MLS side Atlanta United in January 2019, will spend seven seasons with Newcastle if he fulfills his new contract with the Magpies.

Almirón has seen a new version of himself getting born under the guidance of Eddie Howe. Just this season alone, Almirón has already bagged 10 goals while getting to play for the 150th time donning Black and White stripes.

“I am very happy to sign a new contract with Newcastle,” Almirón told the NUFCTV.

The Paraguay (veteran) phenom added that he “felt at home at Newcastle from the beginning,” and that he always felt “very welcomed and like part of the family.”

“I am very happy to stay here and I am going to keep giving everything on the pitch to thank the people of Newcastle,” Almiron concluded.

Speaking about the final ahead against Man Utd, Almirón said that Newcastle “have a very important match,” while acknowledging that although signing a new contract “makes me really happy,” the most important thing for him on a personal level is “that [Newcastle] celebrate this contract with a victory on Sunday.”

Gaffer Howe said himself that Miggy has turned into “a hugely important part of [Newcastle’s] squad on and off the pitch,” before finishing his statement by saying that he is “delighted we’ll continue our journey together.”

Congratulations Miguel on your new deal with the Magpies!
