It hasn’t taken Bruno Guimaraes long to settle in at Newcastle United.
The midfielder arrived from Lyon in January, and could end up costing a club record fee of £42million. But for now it looks like money well spent.
Eddie Howe took his time with the Brazilian, but now he’s established himself as the key component in black and white.
Despite joining less than four months ago, Bruno has already created so many special moments. His first goal against Southampton, the winner against Leicester and the chip away to Norwich. It’s been an incredible start for the 24-year-old, and this is only the beginning.
It’s an exciting time on the pitch for Newcastle, and it’s also an exciting time off it for Bruno.
Bruno Guimaraes set for baby Geordie
He scored his first goal for Brazil in March, and his celebration signified that he and his partner were expecting their first child.
And it’s now been confirmed that they’ll be having a baby boy. The couple held a gender reveal party at the weekend, following Newcastle’s 1-0 loss to Liverpool.
Bruno posted pictures of the event on social media, and you can see a few of his Toon teammates in the background. Federico Fernandez, Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin were all in attendance.
It’s really good to see the players spending time together away from the training ground, especially at such an important moment for Bruno and his girlfriend. He’s clearly struck up a strong relationship with some of his teammates after a short space of time.
This is a special time for Bruno as he begins to start a family, especially so soon after moving his life from Lyon to Newcastle.
