Newcastle United’s rising star Allan Saint-Maximin has kept loads of Magpies in the loop after the fan favourite shared a clip of him training in full-kit on social media.
Predictably lots of Geordie fans fawned over the sight of Saint-Maximin working out at home in the orange third kit.
The French speedster is spending time at home after the club closed Benton training ground and gave the players individual fitness programs in light of recent events.

After arriving at St. James’ Park from French club Nice for £16.2m last summer, Saint-Maximin has netted two goals and provided two assists in 18 Premier League games for Steve Bruce’s Black and Whites. The left winger’s market value is registered at £22.5m via Transfermarkt.
He recently scored a late match-winner against league rivals Southampton, lifting Bruce’s side above the Saints into 13th place in the English top flight.
With football currently suspended, many supporters were delighted to see the Frenchman is making the most of his time off, as he is still putting in a shift at the gym to keep his fitness levels up. One enthusiastic fan labelled Saint-Maximin as “the handsome right-footed version of Messi.”
Have a read through some of the best reactions so far…
