Sky Sports’ Keith Downie has confirmed that Newcastle are ‘on the verge’ of sealing a deal to sign Allan Saint-Maximin.
He reveals that an initial fee of £16.5m rising to £20m is all but agreed, with the two clubs now finalising the ‘finer details’ of the deal.
Sky’s north-east reporter also claims that the 22-year-old Frenchman is planning to travel to Tyneside over the weekend to complete his medical:
This comes after RMC reported earlier on Thursday that we had agreed a 18m euro (£16.5m) deal PLUS ‘considerable bonuses’ to sign the winger, also claiming that he would sign a 6-year deal at St James’ Park.
It’s not done just yet, but this update from Sky Sports suggests that, after weeks of waiting, this move really might be imminent now.
