Blow To Newcastle’s Proposed Imminent Wijnaldum Deal


We had said in earlier article today that we would all see just how close Newcastle are to a deal with Georginio Wijnaldum, and whether it was possible to get him on over the next 24 hours.

That was whether he went on the training camp with the PSV squad today – and news on the PSV web-site that he is indeed part of the group that left Holland today for Switzerland.

Georginio Wijnaldum – off to Switzerland for training camp

The PSV web-site has just announced the training camp and simply listed the players in the squad,  and they included Georginio.

This doesn’t mean that Newcastle cannot still sign the player of course, but it does mean we are not going to sign him in the next 24 hours, and it’s doubtful he can now be signed before Newcastle leave on Saturday for their tour of the USA.

It’s  also is possible that the player could be withdrawn from the training camp at any time, and fly into Newcastle to take a medical and sign a deal.

But the negative is that it now gives time for other clubs to come in for the Dutch International – one of them being Everton, who are understood to be keen on the midfielder.

So unfortunately, once again it looks like Newcastle are simply not moving with enough speed and decisiveness in this summer’s transfer market.

Comments welcome.

    The Dutch press is full of Erwin Koeman (Ronalds brother and assistant) telling Wijnaldum not to come to the Toon cos we are serial failers.

    It is a decent squad, undone by abject mismanagement. I suppose, the club would argue a new broom, but it’s the slowness of change that has done the damage. On the other hand, were in the league, and still in the hunt. McClaren, Austin, Wijnaldum and a equally decent CB, would you’d expect make a huge difference, and of course a better run with injuries.

    Surely signing players earlier is better then later. If they know who to target, why not just f**king sign them. All this positivity created by Mclaren and his new coaching team is slowly going down the pan the longer that moron Charnley takes to sign a f**king player!

    There is need in other papers etc stating that he is going to be left behind still so he can continue talks with Newcastle

    We are just a joke, why go over and have talks with a club and not make a ‘concrete’ offer if your serious about buying a player.

    Our club is moving like a snail in quicksand and quite frankly it is embarrassing to read about.

    beer…I watch a bit of Dutch football because so many Danes play there. Very similar football just s much better system in place in Holland.

    I have watch wijnaldium alot last season. He mostly played ad part of a 3 man midfield in a 4-3-3 formation. Depending on how you construct that midfield I don’t see why both him and de Jong can’t play both 🙂

    We just need an enforcer next to them. Someone with immense stamina.

    Were there this many restricted matches last season?
    Of course, it doesn’t SAY Arsenal, Chelsea, Sunderland, Man United and City are restricted. It just hints they will be.

    I know it feels like about 4 years ago, but does anyone know the first date that we were linked with Wijn? Like as in properly linked with apparent bids made?

    Must’ve been around 2 weeks ago now?

    Ed you have mentioned once or twice that you are ex IBM. Similarly I worked in sales in an IBM agency for a lot of years. If my closure rate had been the equivilent of the Toons on transfers I would have been out on my ear very quickly. That I think is the nub of the problem the current chairman etc do not have the professional nous training or experience to close these deals dowm. Defo need more negotiating skills at the top level

    Having checked, only the Derby and Liverpool had no tickets on general sale to the general public last season.
    And if you watched every home game but these from the East Stand, it was £100 cheaper over the season to not have a season ticket than to have one.

    @BandB: Wasn’t that where a lot of the criticism at Ashley’s “10 year price freeze” was levied? Unless you picked it up in the Championship, you’d be getting done out of your money. It should come as no surprise to anybody.

    Geordie 157,

    Woodgate for me was the best player I’ve ever seen playing in an NUFC shirt for that 1 season he was mesmerising to watch, it’s a shame he never reached his potential after U.S. Through injury.
    A game against Chelsea sticks in my mind, what a player!!

    Jesper et al

    Why does this club regard transfer dealings as a game of brinkmanship? There doesn’t appear to be a real desire to complete deals but they seem to be regarded as a game of poker – who can out-bluff whom!

    It’s a case of who blinks first and in our case, the sellers know we’ve got a trip to the US on Saturday so they hold the strongest position.

    Charnley’s options appear to be offer what the seller wants or lose out. If he went in with a real desire to negotiate a deal rather than have the seller cave in, then we may get the result we want, quicker.

    But no, they’ve got to be seen as winning rather than agreeing a deal.

    We’re becoming predictable and not to be taken seriously.

    Reading the last article reminded me of how often people see a team play one or two or even 5 good games in a row and think that the team can just do that all season.

    A great team IS a consistently good team. Any team can have a Wigan cup final and beat Citeh but still be a sh!te side and get relegated
