Newcastle United: Club sign up Adam Wilson who plays in Allan Saint-Maximin’s position

Newcastle United: Club sign up Adam Wilson who plays in Allan Saint-Maximin’s position - Newcastle United News

Newcastle United have signed up Adam Wilson to a new deal as he has proved his fitness in time for the upcoming 2020/21 season, as per The Chronicle.

As per the outlet, the 20-year old has been struggling with injury woes and apparently attracted some interest from Blackburn Rovers a couple of years ago.

Wilson had made seven appearances in the Premier League 2 in the 2019/20 season before it was cut short by the global pandemic outbreak, scoring two goals, and the Tyneside club’s under 23’s won five of those seven games with him playing a part, according to Transfermarkt.

Which season did Longstaff make his debut for the Newcastle U18's?

The midfielder has featured in a total of 69 matches for the Magpies at youth level, netting 11 strikes and making five assists, and he has also played four times for England at under 18 level (via the website).

Wilson has predominantly played on the left side of midfield for the Toon, the same side as Allan Saint-Maximin, who has made 23 appearances for far in this campaign from the left-wing.

Would Saint-Maximin leave if the Newcastle takeover is not completed?

Yes

Yes

No

No

However, the 23-year old has sometimes lined up a little deeper on the left flank when Steve Bruce has played a 4-4-1-1 formation, like he did when they beat Chris Wilder’s European-chasing Sheffield United 3-0 at St. James’ Park after Project Restart, with Saint-Maximin scoring the opening goal of the match.

Perhaps Wilson can learn from the Frenchman if he has an ambition of eventually breaking into the first-team squad, as NUFC seem to see a future for him at the club given that they have tied him down to a new contract.

Geordies, will Wilson ever make it in the first team? Comment below!
