Newcastle United target Georginio Wijnaldum returns to training tomorrow at PSV, and today he has been linked heavily with the Tyneside club as it looks like he has rejected a possible move to Sunderland according to the Sunday People.
Other reports suggest Sunderland have decided to pull out of the chase – but the Wearside club are no longer said to be after Georginio.
Georginio Wijnaldum – Newcastle said to be close to signing
There was a report in today’s Sunday People that Newcastle were closing in on signing the 19 times Ditch International midfielder, so the fact that he has tweeted he is looking forward to that doesn’t negate that story.
He’s not going to tweet that he will sign this week for Newcastle.
Of course we still don’t know if there’s any truth in the story, but we have been linked with for a few weeks now and he’s been a target for over four years at Newcastle with Graham Carr watching his progress in the Eredevisie.
But expectations are building this week that Newcastle can bring in a couple of good players – so let’s hope that happens.
Here’s Georginio’s Twitter account and one of the tweets he sent out today:
Holidays are over now . tomorrow my first training of the season with @PSV ??
