Dutch Report – Newcastle Could Seal Wijnaldum Deal Today


There is a report on AD.net today with the headline being ¨Newcastle Bid €16M for Wijnaldum¨ and that’s consistent with the Chronicle report today that said they thought Newcastle had bid between €15M to €20M yesterday for the Dutch International.

€16M in today’s exchange rate is about £11.2M – but that offer has not yet been accepted by PS – but the tone of the reports in Holland seem to indicate that’s a good first offer from the Magpies, and a deal could be made for a little more.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Georginio Wijnnaldum – close to move to Newcastle

Here is the short article that has appeared today in Ad.nly on Georginio:

¨PSV captain Georginio Wijnaldum is on the threshold of a departure to Newcastle United.¨

¨The club from the Premier League has a bid of €16M  lodged with PSV – and the Champions seem willing to sell their captain for a few million more.¨

¨The expectation is that both clubs on Wednesday think it’s possible to reach an agreement.¨  ¨Wijnaldum sees himself leaving for Newcastle.¨

¨Steve McClaren, the Newcastle manager is familiar with Dutch football.¨ ¨Moreover, the international would be with Dutchmen Tim Krul, Daryl Janmaat, Siem de Jong and Vurnon Anita. already at Newcastle.¨

¨PSV and Newcastle are in negotiations about the transfer fee. Wijnaldum (24) last year extended his contract with PSV.¨

¨He wanted to be like Memphis Depay with a league title goodbye to Dutch football and PSV promised to be flexible to draw interest to the two players.¨

Manchester United signed Memphis Depay from PSV for £25M in early May – so he’s now gone.

No fee has yet been agreed yet between the clubs – but it looks like Newcastle have come in with a good enough offer that maybe for €2M more, and the offer will be accepted by PSV.

If that happens, the next thing is to agree terms with Georginio, but he’s already been told what wages he will be offered by the Magpies, and it’s rumored they could be as high as £60K/week.

So if all goes well – and that’s still an ¨if¨ – then he could be having his medical soon – and if that happens Newcastle will be very close to completing their first transfer deal of the summer.

But Newcastle will not want to dilly dally any longer,  with Everton said to be moving in to try to do a deal for the 19 times capped Dutch International.

Comments welcome.

    from last thread –

    op- at Newcastle the amount of time it takes to make a signing is not crazy….it’s called Standard Operating Procedure.

    Two weeks from now we will still be talking about identifying our needs, and identifying players to fill them, whilst mourning the fact that Wijnaldum has signed for Everton, Austin for CP, and Matip has signed a new deal at Schalke.

    I am sure the interest in Van Ginkel is real op, its just that the loan deal is a backup plan to signing Wijnaldum. When that deal fails to materialize, we will turn our sights to Van Ginkel, only to find out that he has gone on loan to the Scum.

    Hope not, he’s to good for them.

    I’d take them both and offload Sissoko

    Wijnaldum and sdj will probably compete for the attacking midfield spot.. I don’t see both playing in the pitch same time.

    I still think Sissoko can come good for us, but it will take a lot of changes in the supporting cast. When he is on form, he is a beast but too often he had the look of someone who felt like he had to do it himself and he is not that kind of player. If he can run by a player or two and open up the pitch then good for him, but if he is expected to sit in the hole and to tackle then he looks lost and prone to stupid errors in judgment.

    Why? Ilovetoon.

    We can just play this formation?

    4-1-4-1

    ——————Krul
    Janmaat-New Cb-Saylor-Haidara
    ——————Anita
    Sissoko-De Jong-Wijnaldum-Aarons
    —————–Perez

    I honestly think Perez would thrive in that team, he had to do so much last season on his own due to the incompetence of team mates yet with this team he would have plenty of support!

    I honestly don’t think we need a new striker, Rivière still has to adapt(little hope though), Perez is still improving(Already good) and Cisse is banging in goals with limited playing time.

    I believe we need more creative players, players that will create more chances with the strikers we have, In my opinion it seems like that is what the club is doing. Maybe McClaren realises that the team lacks quality in the midfield? Hence signing Wijnaldum when it seems we are sorted in that position. I honestly think we won’t sign a striker.

    The defense definitely needs sorting out though. We ship in waaaaaaaay to many goals man.

    Root ad (Rotonda, sorry I found that auto correct name to funny to leave out 🙂 )

    I believe that Saylor is our best Center Half, I don’t even think its close to be honest. He just needs a good full season under his belt and unfortunately for him he is injury prone.

    Coloccini leaves too many gaps in our defence due to him closing down the ball too much, that’s fine if your Center half partner has pace but unfortunately for us we are blessed with the immense pace of Williamson.

    Don’t get me started on Williamson!!

    At least Saylor looks good when he plays.

    Maybe we are underestimating Lascelles and Good? Who knows??

    you have to be the most fickle 2 faced alleged fan I’ve ever known. You trashed pardew as much as anyone in the past, so stop giving us that loony bull.

    100,000k a week is what is making cabaye go to CP, not pardew being a good manager you muppet.

    Cant fault Saylor for his enthusiasm but he is as smart as a bag of hammers. He is not the answer at CB. We need two signings there IMO because Collo, Willo are either past it (collo) or were never there (willo). Dummett showed some potential but he is still just a replacement part, and Good, Lascelles, Satka are unproven. Janmaat cannot deputize there because we give away too much attack on the flank.

    watch a video of saylor’s match against city last season. enough said, it’s just one example but fairly typical. The guy has horrendous positional sense, turns slower than a tugboat and will never play a full season.

    Granted willo is worse and colo is aging badly in football terms, but hopefully Lascelles, Matip if we somehow get him and any of Dummet, Satka and Good would be better options now than saylor.

    Naa, I don’t think Saylor is that bad at all, yeah, that’s right! Lets look at his bad games and just block out his good games, sounds about right. Anyone remember that run of games he had when he ended up smacking his face into the post for the well being of our club? He was great then and was unfortunate to get that bad injury. Where would Williamson have been in that situation? He would have been there, yet he wouldn’t have the b*lls to stop it from going in, what about Coloccini? He would have been upfront looking for someone to pressurise. I know Saylor does some daft stuff on the pitch, but he is our best defender here, period.

    I’m totally agree with youngmagpiefromburnley. Saylor is our best CD. Think he does his partner far better too. Both Colo and Willo do play well alongside him. He is also good at set pieces and can score som goals. He is also one of the players who blockes most shoots in the league when he is playing. Unfair to judge him on one match Rolando Hights.

    He is also comfortable on the ball, a skill needed when playing for a club like ours.

    I say that because we never have possession, so booting the ball up the pitch because you can’t handle someone closing you down from 50 metres away isn’t good enough.

    Why is Williamson even at our club? Same could be said about:

    Gouffran
    Obertan
    Coloccini

    Because no-one else wants them. That itself just shows how bad these are. Even Sammy could get out ffs.

    Kris/ YMFB – while it might be OK to like Saylor, he cannot lead the line. He is simply not smart enough, doesn’t read the game well, and while he certainly puts his body on the line, it is exactly that “go for broke” mentality that puts him in the hospital bed every fortnight. Decent support cast but we need true leaders from the back with a good footballing head on their shoulders.

    I’m not saying he should start, I agree that we need to sign Center backs.

    What im saying is that he is the best out of a bad bunch, he would be the first Center Back on my team sheet if we go into the new season with no defenders signed.

    Apologies if I’m wrong but it seems like you’re fairly positive we will sign a Center Back this window, if that’s the case, well done to you. But I can’t simply have this trust for the club after 8 years of the same shite.

    If we sign Wijnaldum then that could supply me with optimism but until then in my eyes we are going into the new season with the same defence.

    Taylor could well be the best of a very very bad bunch of three senior CBs, but that still doesn’t make him competent enough to be at the heart of our defence!

    Saylor should be able to play into his forties due to the time off he’s had.

    He’s prone to a rush of blood that results in pens or red cards. You can’t doubt his commitment but due to his injuries red cards etc he’s not worth a place in the squad.

    If you look at his games played per season it’s shocking, Darren Anderton played more regular.

    IMO we wouldn’t miss him even if we didn’t replace him, except maybe his big gob and fist pumping.
