Newcastle fans have already got a new favourite in summer signing Allan Saint-Maximin, as the young winger was spotted wearing his Magpies top while at a local shopping centre.
Every now and again a player and a fan base just connect, they just ‘get it’, and it seems the bond between Saint-Maximin and the Toon Army is already extremely strong.
Arriving from OGC Nice this summer for an initial fee of £16.5m, the 22 year-old has been interacting with fans on social media regularly since his arrival, even joking about a kicking he’d received in a friendly as a welcome to England.

He is already working with and promoting NUFC Fans Food Bank, an organisation that collects food in the town centre on every Magpies match day.
And now, after being spotted at the popular Metrocentre donning his Newcastle shirt (under his hoodie), fans are queuing up to profess their love for him on Twitter.
