Almiron tells Newcastle what to expect as £21m star faces media

Newcastle’s record signing Miguel Almiron has insisted he will not be weighed down by the pressure of becoming the club’s record transfer after a positive first press conference as a United player.

The player secured a £21m move to the club last month and now looks poised to make his debut in Monday Night Football’s clash against Wolves.

Asked about following in the footsteps of Alan Shearer and Michael Owen as he was unveiled at St James’ Park on Thursday afternoon, Almiron said: “First and foremost I see it as an honour.

“It’s something that I try not to pay too much attention to. It’s something that it secondary when it’s compared to me helping the team.

“I want to bring something to the group and help them. The main aim is settling in and getting to know my team-mates.”

Almiron trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Wednesday and could make his debut at Wolves on Monday evening.

A former Sunderland star has already described Almiron as an “animal” and asked if he is ready to play, he replied: “It’s been a hectic week, lots of things to sort out, but I feel more settled.

“I’m very, very happy I can train daily. I’ve put in some decent work already on the training ground, which is something I needed. I physically feel good and it’s good to focus, working hard and learning the tactics.

“It’s down to the manager whether I will be ready for Monday, but certainly I feel ready and I’m keen to take part.”
