  • Listen to the latest episode of Mail Sport’s podcast ‘It’s All Kicking Off!’ 

Newcastle have confirmed that midfielder Bruno Guimaraes has signed a new five-year contract with the club. 

The Brazilian has become a vital player for the Magpies since joining from Lyon for £36million in January 2022, with Eddie Howe’s side going from the root of the Premier League table to Champions League football in that period. 

Guimaraes has now put pen to paper on a contract extension which will see him remain at Newcastle until 2028. 

As revealed by Mail Sport last month, the new deal includes a release clause in excess of £100m. Newcastle will feel that protects them against an offer below their valuation of the midfielder. 

‘I’m absolutely delighted. The fans have made me feel at home since my first day here and I feel so loved in my life,’ Guimaraes said.

‘I’m so happy here. It’s a place that is so comfortable to be and I hope to keep making the supporters happy and helping the team do well. That’s my goal, because there are no words to describe how happy I am to be here.

‘I remember in my first interview, I said I wanted to play for this club in the Champions League and now it’s happening. We are doing so well and when I look around the pitch at my team-mates, I am so proud of them all. I’m proud of everyone; the team, the staff, the owners and the fans.

‘The city believes again and it’s unbelievable what we have done for the team. I hope that this can continue. It’s amazing what has happened in my life in the last two years.’

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe added: ‘I’m delighted to get Bruno signed and committed to the long-term future of the football club. He’s such an important player and he’s done so well since he joined the club. He’s been a huge success since he’s been here so I just hope that he can continue in that vein and carry on his success with us.

‘I think he epitomises the recent success we’ve had. He’s put in so many good displays, he’s very consistent and he’s got a great personality off the pitch as well.

‘He cares very deeply about Newcastle United and the success of the club and he’s got a great relationship with our supporters.

‘He’s been a key signing for us – definitely the type of signing that we want to make.’

Since joining Newcastle, Guimaraes has made 67 appearances for the club with 11 goals and eight assists to his name.

The news of his extension will come as a major boost to the Magpies, who are in a rich vein of form ahead of their trip to West Ham on Sunday.
