Saudi side Al-Shabab continue pursuit of Newcastle star Miguel Almiron despite £17m deal deemed ‘unlikely’… as Eddie Howe needs finance for new midfielder despite not wanting to sell

Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab are continuing their pursuit of Newcastle United’s Miguel Almiron.

The club initially approached the Magpies with a £17m offer, but a deal was deemed «unlikely».

Newcastle and Al-Shabab have held talks, but it is understood the Saudi side’s interest has not waned despite the initial cuts.

Eddie Howe does not wish to sell Almiron but needs funds for a new midfielder.

Almiron would prefer to stay in Newcastle as he settles on Tyneside with his young family.

The Paraguayan joined the club in 2019 and has since played 195 times, cementing his place as a fan favourite.

Almiron, who turns 30 next month, signed for Newcastle from MLS side Atlanta United in January 2019 for a fee north of £20m.

He signed a new three-year extension in February last year and is contracted to Newcastle until June 2026.

However, Newcastle chief executive Darren Eales warned fans earlier this month that star players could be sold as the club look to stay within the Premier League’s financial rules.

His warning came as the Magpies revealed accounts showing revenue of £250m – a 39 per cent rise – but a loss of £73.4m, largely due to £153m spent on new players.

The Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules allow clubs to lose a maximum of £105 million over a three-year period.

However, Newcastle United boss Darren Eales (left) admitted the club may have to sell one of their key players if they bid enough money.
