Newcastle star Allan Saint Maximin fulfilled the dreams of a group of children by taking them to a toy store and buying them everything they wanted.
Since joining the club in 2019, he has become a fan favorite on and off the pitch.
On the court, his pace and skills have captured the hearts of St. James’s Park devotees. While his actions off the pitch also drew plenty of applause.
Holy Maximin was recently at an event hosted by Helios Pantheon, a NFT collection. At the event, he invited a group of kids to a toy store and pledged to buy them anything they wanted.
It was my dream when I was a child 💭 To be able to buy all the toys I wanted in a store, unfortunately I didn’t have this chance, so I really wanted to give this opportunity to the children who came to the Helios event 🤝🌞🤍

The Frenchman wrote on Twitter: “It was my dream when I was a kid. To be able to buy all the toys I wanted in a store, unfortunately I didn’t have that chance, so I really wanted to give this opportunity to children who came to the Helios event.
In the video posted by Helios, Saint Maximin was seen posing for photos with fans and signing autographs. In the toy store, a jubilant group of children could choose any toy they wanted. A special gesture by a special player.
Fans were quick to show their appreciation for the winger on social media.
One fan said: “This man is an absolute god. Man of the people. Allan Saint-Maximin you are an absolutely beautiful man. I have never seen so many children and even parents so happy in my life. Bow down ASM.”
Another tweeted: “Not a Newcastle fan but Saint-Maximin seems to be one of the friendliest guys in the world, that’s just awesome.
A third fan added: “A great footballer and a very nice guy too, well done Allan, that’s a great thing to do.”
This is not the first time that Saint Maximin showed his generous side, last month he was filmed gifting a Rolex watch to a fan after Newcastle’s Matchday 1 win over Nottingham Forest in the Premier League.
Holy Maximin an integral part of Eddie Howe’s plans for Newcastle this season as they seek to progress from their promising start to 22/23 campaign.
