  • Miguel Almiron’s comments come after a lifeless, limp 3-0 loss against Brighton
  • Last November, his agent suggested the Paraguayan would leave soon
  • The relegation-threatened Newcastle have won two of their last 18 league games

Newcastle midfielder Miguel Almiron has admitted he wants to play on a team that ‘fights more’, fueling speculation that he could leave the club this summer.

Steve Bruce’s struggling squad have won just two of their last 18 league games and are just two points from the relegation zone – albeit with a game in hand against Fulham in 18th place – after a disastrous 3-0 defeat to Brighton for the international break.

Unpopular owner Mike Ashley has backed Bruce to turn things around, despite speculation that the 60-year-old would be fired, but the way the Magpies act has left a lot to be desired.

And Almiron – an energetic, conscientious player himself – openly admitted that Newcastle has not shown enough spunk in their performances in a damning indictment of the Bruce regime.

He told Paraguayan radio station ABC Cardinal on Friday, “I would like to play on a team that fights more,” although he went on to say that he feels “happy” and “comfortable” in the Northeast.

Almiron agent Daniel Campos made similar noises in November 2020, suggesting the 27-year-old may have already left without the coronavirus pandemic.

He told Futbol 970: ‘Miguel Almirón was being observed by Atletico Madrid, but no offer was made. When everything is back to normal, Miguel makes a leap in quality.

Miguel’s pace of work in Newcastle and Paraguay was great. If it hadn’t been for the pandemic, he would have been somewhere else. Maybe he wants to play in a team that has a lot of ball possession. Maybe he’ll make that leap in June. ‘

The 26-cap Paraguay international, whose contract expires in the summer of 2024, has scored four goals in 21 league games this season.

With Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin currently injured, Almiron will likely have to carry the offensive burden in Newcastle’s next game against Tottenham on April 4.
