Newcastle United fans have been speculating over Allan Saint-Maximin’s future following a cryptic social media post.

As always the case with Saint-Maximin since his £16.5million from Nice in 2019, there are rumours surrounding his future. Recently, the 26-year-old revealed he had an opportunity to join another club in January.

And Magpies fans feared the winger has hinted at a potential farewell on the eve of the Premier League final day clash at Chelsea.

“Never forget who was there when no one else was,” Saint-Maximin posted. Time passes, memories fade, feelings change, people leave us, but the heart never forgets. Making history.”

“I hope this doesn’t mean you’re leaving us Maxi but if it does, I’ll always appreciate what you did for this club,” said one fan. Another said: “Horribly sounds like a goodbye post.”

One supporter hoped “this isn’t a cryptic goodbye message”. Saint-Maximin received several replies saying he deserves Champions League football.

During Newcastle’s darkest days under the previous management and ownership, Saint-Maximin was often the beaming light but under Eddie Howe, there’s no denying the winger has become less relied upon.

Saint-Maximin had made no secret of his desire to play Champions League football in years it never looked possible on Tyneside. And now it’s finally here, it’ll be fitting to see remain part of the journey.

Howe has always maintained that Saint-Maximin is an integral part of his squad. Only time will tell if the player remains at St James’ Park for a fifth season.
