According to reports from The Chronicle, the Magpies have agreed a deal in principle for Almiron. Although the details of the deal is unknown, Sky Sports journalist Keith Downie reckons that it will be a club record signing.
The report adds that Newcastle owner Mike Ashley has given the deal the green light to go through. Atlanta were keen to free up the space, while Almiron was eager to join the Magpies.
Newcastle won’t find it difficult to agree to personal terms with the player. Almiron has been in terrific form over the last 12 months, and he will be a superb signing for the Magpies.
