Joelinton in Contract Talks as Newcastle United Seeks to Secure the Brazilian’s Future

Newcastle United engages in contract negotiations with Joelinton, signaling confidence in securing the Brazilian's future at St James' Park.

Sources reveal negotiations are underway between Joelinton and Newcastle United for a contract extension, signaling confidence from both parties. Manager Eddie Howe, a staunch supporter of the Brazilian, aims to keep the 27-year-old at St James’ Park. Despite a challenging start following his £40 million move from Hoffenheim in 2019, Joelinton‘s career has experienced a revival under Howe’s management, especially after being shifted from striker to midfield. The current deal, expiring in June 2025, is poised for an extension as the club progresses from relegation battles to European contention in the Premier League, thanks to the transformative ownership by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund in 2021. Since Howe’s arrival in November 2021, Joelinton has played a pivotal role in Newcastle’s rise, making 58 appearances in central midfield and showcasing versatility on the wings. His contributions were crucial in securing a fourth-place finish last season, marking the club’s return to the Champions League after an 18-year hiatus. Despite Newcastle’s recent Champions League defeat to AC Milan, Joelinton’s thunderous goal and celebratory gesture towards Howe underscore the strong bond between player and manager. The Magpies’ exit from Europe, finishing at the bottom of Group F, doesn’t diminish the positive trajectory established under Howe’s leadership. Joelinton’s contract talks reflect a commitment to building on recent successes and maintaining key players integral to the club’s future aspirations. As Newcastle continues its upward trajectory, securing Joelinton’s future is a strategic move to further strengthen the squad and sustain the club’s newfound competitiveness in English football.
