Henri Saivet (born 26 October 1990) is a Senegalese footballer who plays for French club Saint-Étienne as a central defensive midfielder, on loan from Newcastle United. He is a former France youth international having starred at several youth levels.
In 2007, he signed his first professional contract with Bordeaux, thus making him the youngest professional player in the history of the club. He subsequently made his professional debut during the 2007–08 season, at the age of 17, in a league match against Lens.
On 11 January 2016, Bordeaux manager Willy Sagnol confirmed that he gave Saivet permission to leave the club. Later that day Saivet officially signed a five-and-half year contract with Newcastle United, joining for a reported fee of £5 million.
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.
