Newcastle attacker Saint-Maximin admits transfer interest


Newcastle attacker Allan Saint-Maximin has spoken about recent speculation linking him to AC Milan.

The French winger was being touted as likely to leave the St. James' Park club this winter.

However, the 25-year-old has manager Eddie Howe's faith and started the 1-1 draw against West Ham United this past weekend.

Per the Northern Echo, Saint-Maximin said: “I want to be honest because I'm not going to lie.

“When you are in the situation, a lot of teams can see that and think it's the right opportunity to come and buy the player.

“But I'm very proud to be here, and the most important thing for me is to play. I will always try to be in a position where I play every game because no player plays football to be on the bench.

“Sometimes, though, you need to understand the situation. When I was playing, the team did not lose a game and I did my job, but when I was not there, the team kept playing well and didn't lose either."
