Bruno Guimarães signs new five-year contract with Newcastle United until 2028:
Newcastle United have confirmed that Brazil international midfielder Bruno Guimarães has signed a new five-year contract with the club, keeping him at St James’ Park until 2028.
The 25-year-old joined from Lyon in January 2022 and has quickly become a fan favourite on Tyneside, playing a key role in the club’s transformation under Eddie Howe.
Bruno Guimarães helped Newcastle avoid relegation in the 2021/22 season, and then went on to play a key role in the club’s top-four finish and run to the Carabao Cup final last season.
He has scored 11 goals in 67 appearances in all competitions for Newcastle, and has also established himself as a regular for Brazil, winning 11 caps and scoring one goal.
Speaking about his new contract, Bruno Guimarães said: “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. 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 head coach Eddie Howe was delighted to see Bruno Guimarães commit his long-term future to the club, saying: “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.”
Bruno Guimarães’ new contract is a major boost for Newcastle, who are now looking to build on their success from last season and challenge for trophies in the years to come. With Guimarães in their side, they have a player who can help them achieve their goals.
