Miguel Almiron and Antonioa Barreca have been photographed arriving at the NUFC training ground in the last few moments – with Sky’s Keith Downie saying a deal for Almiron is ‘done’ and simply ‘awaiting confirmation’.
A deal for Andreas Samaris looks like it may have collapsed, however it seems both Almiron and Barreca are all set to become Newcastle United players in the coming hours.
Here’s both arriving at the training ground in the last few moments:
Almiron looks set to become the club’s new RECORD signing after we finally agreed a £21m deal to sign the Paraguayan from Atlanta, while left-back Antonio Barreca looks set to sign on loan with an option to buy from Monaco.
As updates from Lee Ryder and Keith Downie suggest, it seems this Almiron deal is now a matter of when not if – which is a huge relief given the way the Jordan Lukau medical panned out.
What a day this could be for the club – even if our business has been left right until the last minute by the powers that be.
Let’s hope the cold isn’t off putting either!
