Newcastle United on Sunday announced the signing of Brazil midfielder Bruno Guimaraes from Lyon on a four-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee reported to be around $54 million.

 

The deal translates to N22,378,470,066.00 (Twenty-two billion, three hundred and seventy eight million, four hundred and seventy thousand, sixty six naira).

Guimaraes, 24, is head coach Eddie Howe’s third signing of the transfer window, following the arrivals of England international Kieran Trippier and New Zealand international Chris Wood.

“Bruno is a hugely exciting talent and has been one of our primary targets, so I’m delighted to secure him,” Howe enthused.

“He strengthens the group immediately ready for the challenge ahead. He has been one of the standout performers in France and is a full international for Brazil.”

London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur were also interested in the Brazilian but the Toons swooped swiftly to sign the midfielder who will wear the number 39 jersey in honour of his father who is a taxi driver with the number 039 written on the number plate of his taxi.
