His transformation is one of the biggest in the Magpies’ history having found success as a midfielder, despite being initially signed as a No.9.

After helping keep the Magpies in the Premier League, Joelinton won the Player of the Year award for 2021-22 and continued his form into last season in which Champions League qualification was secured.

United have confirmed new contracts for Guimaraes (2028) and Burn (2025) this month and according to Football Insider, talks are progressing with Joelinton.

Joelinton has made 163 appearances for Newcastle - scoring 22 goals and providing 12 assists. He recently made his senior debut for Brazil but missed out on the latest squad because of injury.

The player is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury but Magpies’ head coach Eddie Howe is hopeful to have him back available for the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm).

Indeed, it’s been a frustrating start to the campaign for Joelinton. He carried a knee injury before picking up a hamstring issue just four minutes after coming on as a substitute against Burnley, which has forced him to miss the last two matches.
