“Miguel Almiron will miss the rest of the season after suffering a hamstring injury in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Southampton,” read a statement from Newcastle.

“The club have already been in communication with — and will continue to liaise with — the Paraguayan Football Association ahead of this summer’s Copa America, which the player could still feature in depending on his recovery.”
