Almiron: It's an 'honour' to be Newcastle's record signing

Michael Owen Explains Why He Is Relieved Newcastle Broke Their Transfer Record on Miguel Almiron

NEWCASTLE'S record signing Miguel Almiron has been given the green light to start work with the Magpies after being awarded a work permit. "But I think with the help of my teammates in training and the manager, it's something I think I'll cope with, and they'll help me along the way". I'm in good shape.

"First and foremost I see it as an honor", Almiron said. It's something that is secondary when it's compared to me helping the team.

"As players of this club, Newcastle United, which has so much history, that is pressure in itself in terms of wanting to do well. We want to do well and we know the fans demand that of us".

"I've felt that support and the kindness and good feelings towards me already".

"But not only do they give that to individuals, but to the whole team as well".

Case of measles confirmed in Vancouver
For herd immunity to work, 90 to 95% of people need to be vaccinated, and we're seeing the effects of ignoring the science. Vancouver Coastal Heatlh recommends anyone who isn't sure on their immunization or disease history to be vaccinated.

Moving to the Premier League is undoubtedly a step up for Almiron, who won the MLS Cup in his last game for Atlanta, but the 24-year-old is confident that he can adapt to English football.

"My fee was about £16 million - it gets reported as a couple of different figures - but you would have thought even in this day and age that moderate players can go for similar figures".

He told a press conference, as he was unveild at St James' Park: "I physically feel good and it's good to focus, working hard and learning the tactics". As soon as I heard that Tata Martino [then Atlanta, former Barcelona and Argentina manager] had shown interest in me, I decided straight away.

His capture represented a significant shift in a saga which has dogged the club in the a year ago or so, with owner Mike Ashley refusing to spend heavily in the transfer market while interested parties sought to put together workable takeover plans, and Benitez declining to sign a contract extension without assurances over the current regime's ambition.

"I've watched a bit of him and he looks a talented player".
