John Barnes believes a renewed ‘confidence’ in himself and in the team is the main reason behind Miguel Almiron’s stunning recent form. The Paraguayan has netted six goals in his last six games and is playing the best football of his Newcastle career to date.

Barnes told Bonus Code Bets: “Almiron is a good player but he wasn’t performing at the same high-level last season because Newcastle as a team didn’t have the same confidence. Now they are playing with confidence and he is performing fantastic.

“It has been very clear to me that he has the potential but it’s difficult to perform well in a team that is lacking confidence. I've always thought that when Newcastle would improve he would show his real level and that is the case at this moment in time.”

Terrier reports

Newcastle United will reportedly reignite their interest in Rennes forward Martin Terrier in January. Terrier hit 21 goals in Ligue 1 last season and was briefly linked with a move to the Magpies in summer before opting to stay in France.

However, his eight strikes in just 13 games this season mean interest has once again risen in the striker with Newcastle among a clutch of Premier League clubs interested in his services. 90min.com report that Manchester United, Arsenal, Leeds United and Wolves are among the clubs linked with a move to the £30million striker.
