The midfielder, 25, has been in talks with Toon over a bumper new deal since the back end of last season.

Guimaraes revealed in July that there were “doubts” over an extension having admitted he had held “conversations” with Madrid.

Liverpool and Chelsea are also believed to have enquired over the summer, only to be told that the Samba star is not for sale.

His representatives were keen for a release clause to be inserted in the new deal, which could be set well north of £100million with Newcastle desperate not to lose him to a rival.

Guimaraes, whose current contract expires in 2026, is now set to commit until 2028 having arrived from Lyon for £38m in January 2022.

He bagged the headlines earlier this week as he turned up to Brazil duty with a TESCO bag.

It left fans comparing him to Arsenal star Kieran Tierney, the originator of the Tesco bag trend.

Reports earlier this week suggested Guimaraes had been the subject of a failed transfer bid from Liverpool.

It had been alleged that the Reds had submitted a club-record bid of £100m to try and land him during the summer transfer window.

Instead, Liverpool ended up signing Ryan Gravenberch on deadline day to add to their midfield signings of Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai and Wataru Endo.
