The Brazilian has penned a new five-year deal to keep him on Tyneside until 2028, securing a well deserved reward for his stunning displays since he arrived from Lyon in January last year.
Here’s what Bruno and Eddie Howe told NUFC.co.uk following confirmation of his extension:
Bruno Guimaraes – “I’m absolutely delighted. The fans have made me feel at home since my first day here and I feel so loved in my life.
“I’m so happy here. It’s a place that is so comfortable to be and I hope to keep making the supporters happy and helping the team do well. That’s my goal, because there are no words to describe how happy I am to be here.
“I remember in my first interview, I said I wanted to play for this club in the Champions League and now it’s happening. We are doing so well and when I look around the pitch at my team-mates, I am so proud of them all. I’m proud of everyone; the team, the staff, the owners and the fans.
“The city believes again and it’s unbelievable what we have done for the team. I hope that this can continue. It’s amazing what has happened in my life in the last two years.”
Eddie Howe – “I’m delighted to get Bruno signed and committed to the long-term future of the football club. He’s such an important player and he’s done so well since he joined the club. He’s been a huge success since he’s been here so I just hope that he can continue in that vein and carry on his success with us.
“I think he epitomises the recent success we’ve had. He’s put in so many good displays, he’s very consistent and he’s got a great personality off the pitch as well.
“He cares very deeply about Newcastle United and the success of the club and he’s got a great relationship with our supporters.
“He’s been a key signing for us – definitely the type of signing that we want to make.”
Great news and a relief to see this contract saga reach a positive conclusion. He’s been back to his brilliant best in recent weeks and will hopefully remain on Tyneside for many years to come!
