The deal apparently includes significant and easily attainable add-ons that make it very likely it will reach €22m (£20m). RMC and Soccer Link are reporting that the deal is complete while Nice Matin goes a step further to report that Saint-Maximin will have a medical tomorrow.
Nice Matin journalist William Humberset has sent the following tweet.
Allan Saint-Maximin passera sa visite médicale demain à Newcastle. L'OGC Nice devrait empocher 20 millions d'euros, dont une partie en cash, pour le transfert de l'ailier de 22 ans dans le nord de l'Angleterre.

Allan Saint-Maximin will have his medical tomorrow in Newcastle. OGC Nice is expected to pocket €20m, including a cash portion, for the transfer of the 22-year-old winger to the north of England
