Former Newcastle winger David Ginola says the Magpies must ‘hold onto’ Allan Saint-Maximin during the summer transfer window.   

The 25-year-old Frenchman signed an improved six year contract with Newcastle in 2020 but Sportsmail revealed on Saturday that Newcastle are willing to listen to offers for the £50m-rated winger this summer.

The Magpies were the subject of a £305million takeover from Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund which made them the richest club in world football. 

Ginola says Saint-Maximin is pivotal to Newcastle’s project and insists the Magpies must hold onto him. 

Speaking on Sky Sports ahead of Newcastle’s game with Tottenham, Ginola said: ‘I don’t know if they want to sell him or I don’t know whether he wants to go and find something new, maybe a new challenge.

‘It’s important for them to keep hold of them. He is the jewel in Newcastle’s crown. He has brought some excitement to the team however no enough to change a game.’
