Allan Saint-Maximin loving life at Newcastle after signing new deal until 2026
The Frenchman impressed during his debut Premier League season.
Newcastle forward Allan Saint-Maximin has signed a new deal to stay at St Jamesâ€™ Park until 2026.
The Frenchman was already under a long-term contract, having signed an initial six-year deal when he joined the Magpies in August 2019 following a Â£16million transfer from Nice.
Saint-Maximin impressed during his debut Premier League season, playing 30 times and scoring four goals.
The 23-year-old told the clubâ€™s official website: â€œIâ€™ve played for a lot of clubs â€“ Monaco, Nice, in Germany, but Newcastle, I feel like itâ€™s my home.
â€œThe supporters give me a lot of love, the coach too, and my partners on the pitch.
â€œEverybody gives me love and when you have this, I feel itâ€™s my home and I hope this stays my home for a long time.
â€œEvery club Iâ€™d been before, the fans loved me â€“ but not like the Newcastle fans.
â€œThatâ€™s really important, because for me, you have the football and everything, but you have the human and they give me something different. So if I can give back to the supporters and to the club with a new deal, Iâ€™m really happy.â€
Magpies manager Steve Bruce said: â€œWeâ€™re absolutely delighted that heâ€™s committed his future here. Weâ€™re delighted to be keeping him â€“ and heâ€™s delighted to be staying.
â€œIâ€™m sure the supporters will be delighted with the news. Heâ€™s had an introduction now to what life in the Premier League is like and with Allan, the world is at his feet.
â€œHe can go as far as he wants to go, because heâ€™s got the talent to do it.â€
