Ritchie hails Newcastle impact of Almiron

Newcastle United attacker Matt Ritchie has hailed the impact of Miguel Almiron.

Ritchie predicts that the playmaker - who signed for an initial £16m during the mid-season window - will become a firm fans' favourite on Tyneside soon enough.

"He's a threat and [gives us] something we haven't really had," Ritchie told talkSPORT when he was asked about the impact Almiron has had at Newcastle since arriving on deadline day in January.

"He likes to run with the ball, run behind [the opposition defence], and he's going to be a fans' favourite, that's for sure."
