Miguel Almiron.

Almiron – who joined Newcastle United last January from Atlanta United in a club-record £21million deal – has been influential figure on the pitch for Steve Bruce and Rafa Benitez, his managerial predecessor.

Speaking last week, Bruce said: “It should be a given that they all work, but his physical stats are quite breath-taking. He trains every day. He comes in with a smile, and he’s first in. He’s a manager’s delight. I think we’ve brought him back to life a little bit playing in his best position. For me, his best position is as a No.10.”

Almiron, a Paraguay international, is the club’s leading scorer this season with six goals in all competitions.
