Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are quickly building a tag-team duo that ranks amongst the Premier League’s best.

For Wilson, he believes the 23-year-old winger has ‘all the talent in the world’ and is unplayable on his best day.

Earlier this week, the France youth international put pen-to-paper on a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2026.

“I think the world’s his oyster, really,” Wilson told Newcastle’s official website.

“He’s got all the potential in the world and his attitude matches that as well.

“He’s quite a quiet, humble guy – he wears some lively clothes at times, but he’s a good guy.

“He’s still young as well and I think at his age you just want to be as consistent as possible because I guess the key for him is probably not to overdo it at times.

“He’s got all the talent in the world, he can beat a player – sometimes once you’ve beaten him, get some end product, like he has been doing.

“He makes the game look so easy; for my goal against Burnley, the way he’s done a little bit of trickery himself and then just put a ball in the box – great end product, unstoppable, unplayable.

“So the more times he does that, the better he’s going be and the higher he’s going to go.”

So far in this young Premier League season, Saint-Maximin has scored and dished out an assist – both coming in Newcastle’s last match against Burnley.
