Newcastle boss Bruce shoots down any chance of selling brilliant ace


Newcastle United are surely safe.

The Magpies are in good form under manager Steve Bruce and currently sit 12th in the Premier League table.

They’ve taken 42 points from 32 games and sit 15 points clear of 18th-placed Aston Villa with just six games of the season remaining.

They thumped AFC Bournemouth 4-1 in their last outing, thanks to goals from Dwight Gayle, Sean Longstaff, Miguel Almiron, and Valentino Lazaro.

They have lost just once in their last six games, to Manchester City, and have also drawn with both Aston Villa and Burnley, and beaten Southampton and Sheffield United.

Allan Saint-Maximin was in superb form against the Cherries, registering a hat-trick of assists, and he has subsequently drawn interest from other clubs. 

Both PSG and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a potential summer move but manager Bruce has now rubbished the prospect of the France international departing St James’ Park.

Per Goal, he said: "There is no chance [of him leaving], no chance. Every player in the world has got their price, but Allan has only just arrived. He signed a six-year deal in the summer.


"If people are talking about him, good. It means he's doing it on the pitch. That's all they can focus on and let the rest look after itself.

"I wouldn't put a price on him. When you're looking at the levels of money we bought him for, he is arguably the best pound-for-pound signing in the Premier League. You show me another better. What he has produced, we have probably got the buy of the season."

GIVEMESPORT’S Harry Sherlock says…

The winger is such an entertaining player.

He is quick, skilful and technically brilliant, capable of driving beyond opposition defences and making things happen.

Thus far this season, he has scored three goals and registered five assists in 21 games.

Signed for a fee of £16.5 million last summer, the form shown by the 23-year-old has been such that Newcastle would be crazy to let him move on.

As Bruce says, he has a contract until 2025 and it would take a fortune to extricate him from the club, particularly with their safety assured.

Any suitors are unlikely to have any luck this summer.
