Allan Saint-Maximin makes three-word Bruno Guimaraes statement after what Newcastle United star did against Luton Town.

Bruno Guimaraes' incredible assist during Newcastle United's 4-4 draw against Luton Town on Saturday afternoon has been doing the rounds on social media.

With Luton leading 4-2 at St James' Park, the Brazilian helped spark a comeback when his outside of the foot cross was volleyed home by Kieran Trippier before substitute Harvey Barnes then levelled things up to rescue a point.

A clip of 26-year-old's impressive piece of skill was shared by Newcastle's official Instagram account, and former Magpies star Allan Saint-Maximin was among those to respond and commented "what a player".

Guimaraes and Saint-Maximin were teammates on Tyneside for 18 months and struck up a close bond. When the Frenchman left to join Saudi Pro League side Al Ahli in a £23million last summer, Guimaraes revealed his appreciation for the winger.

He said: “Thank you for everything my bro! You made me feel at home since my first day here! I will never forget how important you were to me. All the best and I will always be with you".

And replying to Saint-Maximin on Sunday evening, Guimaraes said: "Miss you everyday bro."
