Many Magpies have reacted to Newcastle United’s loan signing Jetro Willems wishing Allan Saint-Maximin a happy birthday on Twitter.
The Netherlands international posted a picture of the two stars together:

Willems was spending the season on loan at St. James’ Park from Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt. The left-back is sidelined with a cruciate ligament rupture and his expected return to action is unknown (Transfermarkt).
Despite the setback, the 25-year-old had made 20 appearances for the Magpies this season, scoring 2 goals and providing 3 assists in all competitions. His loan contract is set to expire on June 30th although the board do have the option to buy Willems in the summer (Transfermarkt).
Saint-Maximin has quickly become a fan favourite in Tyneside with his popular social media activity and impressive performances on the pitch. The Frenchman has netted 3 goals and provided 4 assists in 21 matches (Transfermarkt).
As expected a large section of the Toon Army fawned over the two Magpies online with several fans hopeful the defender can make a speedy recovery. One supporter noted “what a partnership these two are.”
