Even if there have been many unforgettable events this season, Newcastle United supporters could at least receive some good news regarding a star’s contract, as a purported deal has been struck.




Newcastle contract news

With the prospect of missing out on Champions League and potentially European football altogether next season, there may have been worries about the future for some at St James’ Park. However, there has been positive news in that regard, with players such as Alexander Isak reaffirming their commitment to the Magpies.

With speculation linking him to Liverpool and Chelsea, Alexander Isak expressed his commitment to staying at Newcastle, stating via The Standard: “Of course I want to be here in the future. I came here for the project, I absolutely love playing here, I really feel at home. I want to finish this season in a good way for me and the team. I love playing here.” This declaration likely comes as a relief for PIF, allowing them to shift focus to potential summer signings. Among the rumored targets are Max Kilman and Dean Huijsen, as Newcastle aims to resolve their defensive injury crisis in the upcoming months.

Before that happens, Eddie Howe is poised to receive a significant boost. According to Fabrizio Romano, Newcastle has reached a verbal agreement with Joelinton regarding a new contract at the club, described as a “huge move.” The transfer expert shared this update on X:


After initial concerns regarding the Brazilian’s future, which led Eddie Howe to remark earlier this season, “He has 18 months left on his contract so it’s a possibility he’ll be sold in the summer. I’m not a fortune teller but it’s a possibility. I hope that’s not the case. I want him to stay. I love him as a person and player. But before a player signs a contract he has to be happy with everything and we are not there yet,” it appears that those worries have now been allayed. With Joelinton’s new contract seemingly settled, the midfielder can now focus on his return and providing his team with a significant boost next season.



“Fantastic” Joelinton more important than ever at Newcastle

Newcastle’s struggles in the absence of Joelinton come as no surprise, given the midfielder’s importance to Howe’s side. Joelinton has transitioned from a transfer disappointment up front to a crucial figure at the core of Newcastle’s midfield, a positional shift that deserves immense credit to Howe and his staff.
