Former Atlanta United star Miguel Almiron makes Newcastle United debut

Newcastle United's most expensive signing made his debut on Monday.

Miguel Almiron entered from the bench in the 72nd minute during Newcastle's 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton on the road, as Wolves scored a stoppage-time equalizer. He entered to a raucous welcome from the traveling Newcastle supporters.  

In 18 minutes, Almiron complete 8 of 9 passes, made five recoveries and created a chance. He played on the left wing of a front three. 

Newcastle now sit in 16th place, two points above the relegation zone. Almiron could make his first start and home debut on Feb. 23 against Huddersfield Town.
