Magpies chief Lee Charnley flew out with the team to France yesterday in order to finally finalise a deal that had been in the pipelines for several weeks.
Apparently, they have concluded an agreement worth £16 million plus bonuses for the French forward, and a deal is expected to be made official soon as the finer details between Newcastle, Nice and Saint-Maximin’s agent commissions have been sorted out.
The Saint James Park outfit have beaten AC Milan, Everton and Arsenal to Saint-Maximin’s signature, and adding a player that ended last campaign with six goals and three assists in 34 appearances is a huge boost for manager Steve Bruce’s attack.
The Newcastle boss will be glad the deal has been gotten over the line after admitting that he is a player the club had registered an interest in.
