Saint-Maximin wanted by Premier League duo after ‘fallout’ with Steve Bruce – Report

According to the Daily Mail’s Craig Hope, Allan Saint-Maximin’s future has been thrown into doubt after a disagreement with Steve Bruce over his fitness.

The north-east reporter claims the two are making conflicting claims about the Frenchman’s hamstring problem, with Saint-Maximin insisting he was fit to play before being dropped by Bruce for Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Burnley.

As a result, he claims both Wolves and Crystal Palace have made their interest known after news of a their fallout.

Here’s a snippet from his concerning ‘exclusive’ for The Mail, which also claims there’s been ‘concerns’ over his recent performances in training:

Allan Saint-Maximin’s future at Newcastle is in doubt after Steve Bruce dropped him for Saturday’s goalless draw with Burnley, then claimed the winger was struggling with a hamstring injury.

Sources insist the 22-year-old is fully fit and available for selection, even though manager Bruce said on Monday he was a doubt for tonight’s FA Cup tie at West Bromwich because of back and hamstring issues.

Wolves and Crystal Palace are monitoring developments after learning of the situation. 

It has been suggested that Bruce was trying to protect Saint-Maximin by saying he is carrying a slight injury, rather than revealing he had been dropped, although Newcastle maintain he was struggling with a hamstring problem on Thursday and the manager chose not to risk him.

Sportsmail understands there have been concerns about the Frenchman’s recent performances in training and Bruce decided he wanted to field a team he could rely on against Burnley. 

It’s not what we wanted to hear just hours before our crucial FA Cup clash with West Brom tonight, is it?

Not only that, it’s the last thing we needed when the influential Frenchman could be key in our final 10 games of the league season, with us winning just ONE of 14 games he’s failed to start in.

Let’s hope this is brushed under the carpet. If not, I’m sure plenty Newcastle fans would join me in hoping the exciting winger outlasts Steve Bruce at Newcastle United..

  1. Steve Bruce is a class one PRICK I just wish he would piss off from our club but he cant because he is stuck up to far up Ashleys arse, The bloke does not have a clue what he is doing and is massively out of his depth, The only way we are where we are is through some unbelieveable good luck .
    I am ****e sick of hearing Bruce saying we can take some positives out the game it is every week the same **** comes out his mouth, I really hope st maxamin is here long after that useless piece of lard has gone..
