Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin appears to be close to making his return to action now.
Newcastle United fans are delighted after Allan Saint-Maximin tweeted that he was pain-free last night.

Saint-Maximin has been out injured for Newcastle in recent weeks, and he has been a big loss for Steve Bruce’s side.
The dynamic £16 million winger (Chronicle) is arguably Newcastle’s biggest attacking threat, and they look a much more dangerous side when he plays.
The Magpies have struggled for goals since Saint-Maximin was ruled out, even if they did manage to beat Rochdale 4-1 last night.
And the news that Saint-Maximin is close to returning to full health has excited Newcastle supporters.
