Newcastle and Lyon reach agreement for Bruno Guimarães transfer

L’Équipe report this morning that Lyon and Newcastle United have reached an agreement over the transfer of Brazilian midfielder Bruno Guimarães.

The transfer fee is expected to reach €50m in total, with the Premier League side paying Les Gones €42.5m to begin with €8m which would essentially depend on the club surviving relegation.

The move becomes the third biggest sale in Lyon’s history. A Newcastle representative has touched down in Belo Horizonte, where the midfielder is with his national team since yesterday. A medical will then take place this afternoon, with an official announcement expected tomorrow at the latest.
