Newcastle United are looking to extend the contract of Joelinton. He has proved to be a pivotal part of Eddie Howe’s team. Talks began on his new contract.
Joelinton signed for Newcastle United in 2019 on a six-year deal. So, his contract will expire in 2025. Newcastle had to pay £40 million for his signature. His life at the Tyneside had a start to forget. However, since Eddie Howe joined the club as the manager, things have changed for the Brazilian midfielder. He has become an instrumental part of Newcastle’s midfield. Now, Eddie Howe wants to give his important players a long-term contract. That is why the contract negotiations with Bruno Guimaraes have begun already. Now, it is time for his compatriot’s contract extension at the Magpies. According to a recent report from the Telegraph, contract talks of Joeliton at Newcastle have already begun. He is an important part of Newcastle’s midfield and therefore, the club wants to give an important contract to their important player.
Does Joelinton deserve a new contract at Newcastle United?
The 27-year-old Brazilian midfielder, Joelinton is not even on the last year of his contract. But, the kind of improvement he showed under Eddie Howe will surely make him an important part of the squad. The Brazilian duo of Joelinton and Bruno Guimaraes has certainly become a headache for other clubs and Newcastle fans are enjoying that. That is why the club doesn’t want to lose their important players. At the age of 27, he will be in his prime form. He played a very important role in Newcastle’s resurgence. He even got praised by various English pundits like Jamie Carragher. Thus, if the report of The Telegraph is correct and the Magpies are negotiating a new contract for Joelinton, then Newcastle fans will be delighted.
