Almirón to miss final three games
Written by Dan King
Miguel Almirón will miss the rest of the season after suffering a hamstring injury in Saturday's 3-1 win over Southampton.
The 25-year-old was withdrawn in the 64th minute against the Saints and having been assessed by the club's medical staff, it has been confirmed that he will not be fit for the Magpies' final three matches of the campaign.
The club have already been in communication with - and will continue to liaise with - the Paraguayan Football Association ahead of this summer's Copa América, which the player could still feature in depending on his recovery.
