Nixon in Brazil to oversee Newcastle deal for Lyon midfielder Guimaraes

Newcastle's Head of Recruitment Steve Nixon is overseeing the signing of Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes today.

Sky Sports says Nixon is in Brazil today to wrap up a deal for Guimaraes.

He will be undergoing a medical later this afternoon ahead of a £40m move to the Magpies.

The initial bid is £33.5m, with a further £6.5m in add-ons.

Guimaraes had previously been linked with Arsenal, but is now seemingly on the verge of a move to the Toon.
