Howe added: “He’s here to stay. He's an integral part of the team.”

Saint-Maximin, under contract at Newcastle until 2026, spoke about his injury frustrations this season in an interview with the Gazette in Saudi Arabia last month.

“It’s been a very difficult time for me, because you can see I put in a lot of work during pre-season to be able to come back fit and to be the best I can,” said Saint-Maximin.

“I started very well, I did a great game against Manchester City – it was one of the best games I’ve played for Newcastle.

“And, just after that, we were losing 1-0 against Wolves, and I scored a nice goal to get a draw for the team. It was a very good and important moment for me, but afterwards it was a bad moment, because I felt pain in my hamstring.

“It was a very difficult time for me, because always, when you see the team play well, you want to be able to help them.”
