The 23-year-old midfielder signed a one-year contract with Newcastle earlier this year after impressing the club’s coaches during a trial period.


A childhood friend of Newcastle star Allan Saint-Maximin, he played in the lower divisions of Australia last year and moved to England in the summer on the recommendation of the Frenchman.



Saint-Maximin also put in a word with Newcastle, who took Indalecio on trial, and he admits that he truly popped up on the radar of many with an astonishing goal during his trial.


He believes he showed all the ingredients needed in terms of ability and attitude during his trial and it landed him his first professional contract with Newcastle at the age of 23.



Indalecio told French outlet Foot Mercato: “My childhood friend, Allan Saint-Maximin, told me to come to England and said that he would try to help me.


“He spoke well about me to Newcastle and they agreed to take me on trial.



“I did four weeks of training and one day during an opposition training, I put a scissor kick in the top corner, which made a buzz.


“It was also a sign of my technical ability, which is not within the reach of just anyone and it helped me.


“I showed good things and a good attitude; I did it well and the work paid off.


“I did what I had to do and landed a professional contract.


“I have signed for a year with Newcastle.”


Indalecio is part of the Newcastle Under-23s set-up and it remains to be seen whether he gets a look-in from Steve Bruce at any given point in the season.
