Newcastle United news: Striker move eyed for January, Bruce set to drop TWO key men at Leicester & the inside track on Allan Saint-Maximin
A French football expert believes Newcastle United’s Allan Saint-Maximin will be worth the wait for Geordies – but he could frustrate in equal measure.
The winger is set to be handed only his second start since arriving in a £16million deal from Nice in the summer this weekend against Leicester City.
And Get French Football News’ Rich Allen believes the player fits the bill when it comes to United’s love of enigmatic Frenchman.
“Newcastle fans may very quickly see what many mean when they say he will continue the theme of frustrating players moving to England,” he said.
“He is another who is full of confidence, has a bag of tricks and will occasionally do something fantastic.
“He certainly is a character but is someone who needs to focus on his football.”
Saint-Maximin might be in, but Jonjo Shelvey and Miguel Almiron look set for the chop this weekend.
Meanwhile, Bruce has won just one game in seven since taking the reins at St James’s Park – and with Leicester (a) and Manchester United (h) next up, that record might not change. Here’s the latest odds on relegation.
