Sky Sports and the Chronicle have BOTH confirmed that Miguel Almiron is now on his way to Newcastle for a medical after the club agreed terms with Atlanta to sign the MLS playmaker.
This comes after initial claims from Atlanta reporter Doug Robertson that a deal that Newcastle had FINALLY been agreed – and it seems these reports ARE true.
Here’s what Sky and the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder and Mark Douglas have had to say about the deal in the last few moments:
It’s best not to get TOO excited just yet given how the Lukaku deal ended up panning out, however this seems to be a serious breakthrough.
Let’s hope he arrives in good time, passes his medical and is pictured holding up the black and white scarf before 11pm on Thursday!
