Allan Saint-Maximum Left Out Of Pre-Season Friendly As Newcastle Close In

OGC Nice have announced their squad for their pre-season friendly tonight at Portuguese club Boavista. Allan Saint-Maximin has been left out as anticipated. This is a good sign that things are progressing towards a breakthrough in the deal.

Sky Sports is also reporting that Steve Bruce has confirmed Newcastle’s interest in Allan Saint-Maximum. They also state that Newcastle have had two bids rejected according to French sources. We are not sure if this second reported bid is after the €16m reported by RMC from earlier today.

Lee Ryder also confirms that talks are currently ongoing between Newcastle and Nice for the French winger.
