Newcastle United Star Allan Saint-Maximin Gives Fan £2,000 Watch In Unbelievable Gesture
| Last updated
Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin gave a fan a watch costing nearly £2,000 in a random act of kindness.
The Magpies finally got their first win of the Premier League season against Burnley on Saturday, with Callum Wilson's first half goal securing the three points at St James' Park.
Saint-Maximin is quite possibly Newcastle's most talented player and regularly dazzles the Geordies with his mazy dribbles.
He's developed quite the rapport with the Newcastle faithful and only added to that last month when he gave a Tag Heuer Aquaracer watch to Toon supporter Michael Urwin.
I’ve been coming to st James park for nearly 30 years and never been as happy as I am today thanks to this generous man @asaintmaximin walks over and gives me this watch!

The fan was hoping for an autograph as he waited at the players' entrance but ended up coming out with the expensive timepiece.

Speaking to Chronicle Live, Saint-Maximin said: "He got out of his car and came over to where I was standing and handed me a box and said 'This is for you'. I was shaking, to be honest with you, but he was pretty excited and was just saying 'Open it, open it!'
"It's an absolutely incredible thing to do. I just asked if I could have a picture as well and he was happy to do it. I really just couldn't believe it.
"I just wanted him to know how humbled and appreciative I am that he chose me."
Michael still doesn't know why Saint-Maximin picked him but is of course more than grateful.
Despite its value, he is not interested in selling the watch and instead plans on passing it down to his kids.
Michael attends games with his 10-year-old son Kian, who unfortunately wasn't able to meet Saint Maximin because he was taking school entrance exams.
