Newcastle sign Brazilian Bruno Guimarães

Newcastle United announced on Sunday the signing of Brazilian international midfielder Bruno Guimarães from Lyon on a four-and-a-half-year contract.

Guimarães, 24, is the third deal for coach Eddie Howe in the current transfer window, following the arrival of England international Kieran Trippier and New Zealand international Chris Wood.”Bruno is a very exciting talent and one of our main goals, so I’m happy we signed him,” Howe said.”It strengthens the group in preparation for the next challenge. He was one of the leading players in France and he is an international player for Brazil.”

The midfielder’s transfer is reported to be worth €40 million (£33 million), plus an additional €8 million.
