‘No chance’ of Allan Saint-Maximin leaving Newcastle in summer – Bruce

Newcastle standout

Newcastle secured Allan Saint-Maximin’s services last summer, signing the winger from Nice for £16.5m.

This fee, at least prior to the coronavirus break, appeared fairly cheap for such a talented youngster.

And since making the move to the North East, Saint-Maximin has more than proved just what a bargain Newcastle managed to unearth.

A handful of injury problems have limited Saint-Maximin to just 21 league appearances for the Magpies.

But, across these showings, it has been quite clear that the electrifying winger is a cut above anyone else in Newcastle’s attack.

Saint-Maximin’s combination of pace, quick feet, dazzling skills and killer instinct in the final third make him a nightmare for the Premier League’s full-backs.

Saint-Maximin staying put

Saint-Maximin has been particularly impressive since the season restarted, having notched goals vs Sheffield United and Southampton – plus a hat-trick of assists vs Bournemouth.

And now, ahead of Newcastle’s clash with West Ham on Sunday, the 23-year-old has received a fair bit of praise from his boss.

Steve Bruce claimed that Saint-Maximin is perhaps the best pound-for-pound signing in the Premier League:

“I wouldn’t put a price on Allan now.

“When you look at the level of money we bought him for, he’s arguably the best pound-for-pound signing in the Premier League.

“You show me another better. When you look at what he’s produced for us, we have probably got the buy of the season. He’s blessed with unique skills, which he’s got in abundance.”

The Newcastle manager then ruled out the possibility of the winger departing the club in the summer:

“There’s no chance of Allan leaving. No chance at all.”
