Newcastle United agree 6 year contract with Allan Saint-Maximin – RMC
Allan Saint Maximin will become Newcastle United’s second signing of the summer according to Thursday afternoon reports from France.

They state that after turning down previous offers, Newcastle United had raised the bid to 18m euros plus add-ons, with 4m euros worth of those add-ons ‘easily obtainable’ for the Ligue 1 club.
That would guarantee them at least 22m euros (£20m) for the winger,
RMC and Soccer Link report that Premier League side Newcastle United have today concluded an agreement with Ligue 1 club OGC Nice to sign 22-year-old French youth international winger Allan Saint-Maximin.
They also confirm that like Joelinton, Allan Saint-Maximin has agreed a six year contract with NUFC, taking him up to June 2025.
Soccer-link have also reported on the deal that is said to have been concluded and they also point out that both Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin are represented by the same agents.
Soccer-link were the ones who also ran the story yesterday, saying that Newcastle had seen an initial 5m euros (£4.6m) bid for Swedish international right-back Emil Krafth turned down but that they understood only a slightly higher offer was needed and NUFC would be back to seal that deal.
