Miguel Almiron is already a favourite of the Newcastle faithful, such was the high-profile nature of his arrival, but his latest comments are only going to make him more popular with fans.
The Paraguayan was recently unveiled as a Newcastle player, and he took a moment to reveal one thing that he’s looking forward to seeing.
Almirón: “I’m really grateful for the way I’ve been welcomed by the supporters here. I really can’t wait for the moment when I can turn out for the side here at home.” #NUFC

Clearly, Almiron has enjoyed the welcome that he’s received from the Newcastle faithful, and we’ll be sure to make it extra special for him at St. James’ Park.
It’s always interesting to see whether a player from abroad, that may not have seen much of the club or the stadium, recognises the significance of our home ground. Especially if you’re from a lesser league, the noise and the scale is going to be something that you’ve never really experienced before.
However, Almiron appears to be well aware of what he’s getting himself into it – and he looks ready for the challenge.
