Benitez denies Miguel Almiron deal

Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has dismissed claims that the club is close to capturing the signature of Atlanta United midfielder Miguel Almiron.

Benitez remains coy after the possibility of any deal for the Paraguay international midfielder, amid claims of him joining Newcastle United either on loan or in a £15m permanent transfer.

“I don’t talk about players, but I’ve heard that someone has said we made an offer and after, we said ‘No, we didn’t make any offer,” Benitez told Sky Sports.

“We don’t talk about players. If we make an offer, they will know, we will know and not necessarily the press will know.

He said: “I was talking with him and it’s the same message: business as usual, so nothing new.”
