Career[edit]

Bordeaux[edit]

In 2007, Saivet signed his first professional contract with Bordeaux, thus making him the youngest professional player in the history of the club.[3] He subsequently made his professional debut during the 2007–08 season, at the age of 17, in a league match against Lens.

Newcastle United[edit]

On 11 January 2016, Bordeaux manager Willy Sagnol confirmed that he gave Saivet permission to leave the club.[4] Later that day Saivet officially signed a five-and-half year contract with Newcastle United, joining for a reported fee of £5 million.[5][6]

Saint-Étienne loan[edit]

After playing just four matches starting twice in half a season with Newcastle United, Saivet joined AS Saint-Étienne on a season-long loan on 23 August 2016 without a purchase option given to Saint-Étienne.[7][8]

Return to Newcastle United[edit]

On 23 August 2017, Saivet played his first game for Newcastle since 6 February 2016 starting an EFL Cup tie against Nottingham Forest.[9] He was recalled to the first team on 23 December and scored a free kick in a 3–2 Premier League win against West Ham.[10]

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Senegal on August 14, 2013.[11]
