Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is fully committed to the Magpies for the foreseeable future, according to reliable journalist Tim Vickery.
The Lowdown: Bruno a hero at St James’ Park
The Brazilian joined Newcastle back in January and became an instant hero, making an enormous difference to the side with his passion and quality.
There have been concerns that the 24-year-old could swiftly move to another club but a fresh update suggests otherwise.
The Latest: Midfielder expected to stay
Speaking to Give Me Sport, South American football expert Vickery said he believes Bruno will still be around at Newcastle for some time:
“He says that he’s totally committed to the Newcastle project and that’s going even better than I think people could have expected this time last year.
“If he’s happy there, why not stay at least for a couple of years?”
The Verdict: Great news for Newcastle
This is extremely promising from a Newcastle perspective, considering Bruno is arguably the first name on Eddie Howe’s team sheet currently.
The midfielder has lifted everyone around him and acted a catalyst for a huge jump in quality by the Magpies, and he will continue to spearhead their charge as the season goes on.
Bruno is adored by the masses at St James’ Park already and the thought of him leaving is a devastating one – and something that hopefully won’t come to fruition for a long time. Champions League qualification could the key to him staying put, as it would suggest that Newcastle are matching his ambition.
