Willems full of praise for Newcastle pal Saint-Maximin

Newcastle United fullback Jetro Willems is full of praise for Allan Saint-Maximin.

The winger has quickly become a cult hero since his arrival from Nice.

Willems told Shields Gazette: "He, like me, wants to play football, make space.

“We can play well with each other.

"We needed the win at West Ham. It was nice to get three points. I'm enjoying it. Now it's very good. It's nice to play for Newcastle, a great club and history, of course. It's a great opportunity."
