Head coach Steve Bruce said: “It’s somebody we’ve looked at. It’s somebody we have identified, and we’ll see what happens.”

Saint-Maximin was left out of Nice’s squad for the midweek friendly against Boavista.

However, the 22-year-old, rated in the £20million-bracket by his club, will travel to Wales for tomorrow’s friendly against Cardiff City.
