Allan Saint-Maximin has been a fan favourite since arriving on Tyneside in the summer, proving to be Newcastle’s main source of flair, and now he’s endeared himself even further to the St. James’ Park faithful.
Is Allan Saint-Maximin Newcastle's best player?
Saint-Maximin, who arrived from OSG Nice for around £16.5 million, was widely regarded as one of the most promising young talents in France and has been a making name for himself since pledging his future to the Magpies.
Following a Man of the Match display during their 1-0 home win over Manchester United, the France U21 international seemed in the mood again for their visit to West Ham at the weekend – finding himself through on goal twice but unluckily failing to capitalise.
Despite the wasted opportunities in an otherwise impeccable attacking performance, fans have still praised the winger for his efforts, while loving his gesture after the game even more.
The 22-year-old gave his shirt to a couple of travelling supporters, confirmed by a club official tweet, with supporters flocking to praise him for his humility.
I actually love you allan

Even though he’s only recently moved to Tyneside, he gets it. Fair play to all involved.
