It’s official! Allan Saint-Maximin has signed a new improved contract at the club – and the winger has revealed how he hopes to stay at Newcastle for a “long time” now it “feels like home”.
The Frenchman has signed a new SIX-year deal at St James’ Park, keeping him on Tyneside until 2026.
Here’s what he’s told NUFC TV after committing his future to the club, along with his message to fans on social media:
“I’ve played for a lot of clubs – Monaco, Nice, in Germany, but Newcastle, I feel like it’s my home.
“The supporters give me a lot of love, the coach too, and my partners on the pitch.
“Everybody gives me love and when you have this, I feel it’s my home and I hope this stays my home for a long time.
“Every club I’d been before, the fans loved me – but not like the Newcastle fans.
“That’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, I’m really happy.”
ASM also posted this genius video on his Twitter page in response to the news:
Steve Bruce has also had this to stay following confirmation of his new improved deal:
“We’re absolutely delighted that he’s committed his future here. We’re delighted to be keeping him – and he’s delighted to be staying.
“I’m sure the supporters will be delighted with the news. He’s had an introduction now to what life in the Premier League is like and with Allan, the world is at his feet.
“He can go as far as he wants to go, because he’s got the talent to do it.”
Brilliant news and a well deserved reward for undoubtedly our most talented player.
