Miguel Almiron Of MLS Moves To Newcastle

One of the talented players who are part of the MLS pool is being exported to Newcastle. Miguel Almiron is a Paraguay international and he is now bound for Premier League; he will have a coveted role in Newcastle as well.

The transfer was decided when a transfer window was closed last Thursday and Newcastle United secured Miguel’s signature for a reported amount of 28 million in US dollars.

He joined and became a real star as he showcased fast pace as well as skills with his left foot. When he was with Atlanta he wore No10 shirt and showcased skills like being able to make tackles with defensive sides or digging deep to help provide outlets such as runs and passes through space. He also focuses on putting pressure on the back line of the opposition that proves advantageous for his team.

After two seasons of professional soccer, he is now considered a national champion of US as well as Paraguay and Argentina. He has scored a total of 22 goals, 30 assists in 68 games that he played with Atlanta. The most recent victory that he celebrated with Atlanta was to clinch the MLS cup which they did last season.
