DEAL AGREED: Newcastle United Boss Eddie Howe ‘recommends’ double deal is now imminent as Agreement reached

Bruno Guimaraes is expected to sign a new contract with Newcastle in the coming days after verbally agreeing to stay until June 2028.
While Magpies head coach Howe has been tight-lipped about when the transaction will be finalized, he is optimistic about a favorable outcome after talks have been ongoing since early 2023.
“I don’t know, it’s not something I am involved in day to day,” said Howe. “I am so focused on so many days that it is taken care of by others.” I’m confident I’ll hear anything before you, but maybe not!”

Newcastle manager added: “I believe that a contract is important for any player because you want stability.” You want the player to participate in training and games.

That is any player who is not thinking about their future. You want them to think about football, not only Bruno.
“I’m removing everything from the pitch from them.” Personal difficulties or contract issues aside, football is the most essential thing. If a player trains and plays to the best of their ability, he or she will only earn positive results. So fingers crossed that we can achieve an agreement.”

Guimaraes joined Newcastle from Lyon in January 2022 for £40 million and signed a four-and-a-half year contract until June 2026.

Newcastle are also aiming to extend the contracts of midfielders Sean Longstaff and Joelinton, whose current contracts expire in June 2025.

Longstaff agreed an extension in 2022, while Joelinton is still under the original six-year contract he signed when he joined the club for £40 million from Hoffenheim in 2019.

When asked if he would recommend new contracts for the midfielders, Howe said, “Definitely, we want to try and build up the squad, but that doesn’t mean we take the players we already have for granted.”

“We have to provide the right environment for them to want to stay, and hopefully we have.” Obviously, finances play a role as well. They are two important players for us.”
