Allan Saint-Maximin Hypes Up Imminent Saudi Newcastle Takeover

Allan Saint-Maximin Hypes Up Imminent Saudi Newcastle Takeover

The seemingly persistent doom and gloom around St James' Park is set to be lifted imminently, with the Chronicle reporting that the Premier League are close to approving the takeover deal led by Amanda Staveley and backed by Saudi Arabia's PIF and the Reuben brothers.

Allan Saint-Maximin summed up the feeling among Newcastle United supporters with this brilliant tweet that has been retweeted 2.6k times and been liked 17.6k times at the time of writing.

The replies are something to behold as well; among these includes Newcastle's star man sitting on top of a camel holding both the Premier League and Champions League trophies!

It is fair to say the fans may be getting slightly carried away, but who could blame them after what has been a dismal 14-year tenure under Mike Ashley? News of a takeover initially surfaced in Spring last year, but that agonising wait for the details to be confirmed could soon be over. With the Sports Direct tycoon set for the exit door, it now looks as though the feel-good factor is back in the north east.

The Frenchman is eager to challenge for trophies in his career and the Toon Army will hope this latest tweet from their star man is an indication that he wants to stay on Tyneside and ignore interest from the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea.

Saint-Maximin has been one of the shining lights in what has been a miserable recent time for the Magpies, who are still waiting for their first Premier League win of the season after a 2-1 defeat to Wolves on Saturday.

The 24-year-old has scored two goals and made three assists in eight appearances across all competitions season, but Steve Bruce's men still sit down in 19th place.

There are now hopes that the impending takeover can transform the mood around the club and propel them away from the bottom three.

Newcastle are back in action after the international break on 17th October when they host Tottenham Hotspur at St James' Park, before rounding off the month with a trip to Crystal Palace six days later, ahead of welcoming title challengers, Chelsea to St James' Park on 30th October.
