Official: Newcastle Confirm Third January Signing

Newly-rich Newcastle United have announced their third signing of the January transfer window in the form of a senior Brazil international.

The Magpies have confirmed the arrival of Selecao midfielder Bruno Guimaraes from French giants Olympique Lyon, with the 24-year-old's signature believed to have cost them £33 million (R675 million).

With the Geordie club having already signed Chris Wood and Kieran Trippier in this window, manager Eddie Howe will now feel his side stands a good chance of avoiding relegation from the Premier League this season.

Guimaraes is a highly-rated midfielder who was said to be wanted by Juventus, Arsenal and Manchester United, and who has made three appearances for Brazil since his senior debut in 2020.

The player was signed by Lyon from Athletico Paranaense two years ago, and now departs the French club after making 71 appearances and contributing to 11 goals.

In terms of his playing style, Guimaraes is viewed as an industrious, pressing midfielder who has an excellent knack of winning back the ball, although he is equally efficient in possession.
