There had been speculation over the future of the 28-year-old, signed from Atlanta United in January 2019, at the start of the summer ahead of an expected busy few months in the transfer market for the club.

However, Almiron, speaking to the club’s matchday programme, says he’s “very happy” at Newcastle.

Asked about speculation over his future, Almiron said: "I’m always very relaxed on that score. My head’s always focused on Newcastle. I’m very happy here, and I’ve always maintained that.

"From the very first day I arrived at the club, people have always treated me very, and so I’m always going to be very grateful to everybody at the club and all the fans for how they’ve treated me since day one.

"I’ve come here from far away, and I’ll always value the love and affection that the Newcastle public have shown me.

"So, like I say, My mindset and attention is always on Newcastle, I want to put in a great pre-season, so I’ll be able to be in a position to help the team in the games ahead.”

Almiron – who made 30 Premier League appearances, and scored one goal, last season – played in last night’s 1-0 home win over Atalanta, and will sit out this afternoon’s friendly against Athletic Bilbao.
