Newcastle United attacking midfielder Allan Saint-Maximin has put up a social media post that has sent tongues wagging.

The Frenchman has been linked with Everton, with former Magpies boss Rafa Benitez looking to raid his old club.

Saint-Maximin took to his Instagram Stories to post a Winston Churchill quote, and Newcastle fans think he is hinting at a potential summer exit.

The 24-year-old revealed in June that he wants more than relegation battles every season, and his latest social media activity has the Toon faithful concerned, with some of them reacting on Twitter to his post.

Cryptic social media posts from players linked with exits during the transfer window are not the best, and Saint-Maximin has understandably worried Newcastle fans.

No one knows exactly what he really means, but the St James’ Park outfit are unlikely to sell one of their most important players.

It would take a huge bid from Everton or other suitors to have any chance of prising Saint-Maximin away from Tyneside this summer, and the current situation of the market is not likely to allow that.

The winger wants to play in Europe and boost his chances of playing for France, and staying in Newcastle is not likely to help with his international ambitions.

Playing in an attacking side would see him score and assist more, and head coach Steve Bruce is not particularly keen on playing on the front foot.

With four more years still left on his contract, Newcastle are in a commanding position over his future, and a move is unlikely to happen this summer.
