Allan Saint-Maximin got all emotional on Wednesday night.

Shortly after his new six year contract was announced, the 23 year released a personal statement on social media.

Allan Saint-Maximin declaring: ‘I love Newcastle and everything it stands for…It feels like home to me now, it feels like I’m a part of this City…’

The French winger making a pledge to the Newcastle fans: ‘I will do everything I can do to achieve great things with this club! You guys deserve it and the best is coming!’

Interesting to see that ASM namechecked two people in this Twitter statement.

Allan Saint-Maximin saying: ‘I now have the dream of following in the footsteps of David Ginola, I want to leave my mark here like he did!’

Here’s hoping.

Very interesting to see the identity of the other person who Allan Saint-Maximin wanted to talk about.

ASM desperate to acknowledge this member of  NUFC staff: ‘Thank you Steve Nickson, thank you for all the long discussions about football and life. Thank you for taking the time to understand me, thank you for explaining and convincing me why this Newcastle project is an incredible opportunity. I am very grateful for what you have done.’

Nickson has been blamed (along with Mike Ashley!) by many for the signing of Joelinton, so it is interesting to see success story ASM so keen to credit the head of recruitment for playing a key part in his arrival and settling in at St James Park.
