Smiling Wijnaldum Arrives At Newcastle Airport – Photo

2:30 pm, Friday, July 10th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 72 Comments

Well, Georginio looks happy enough as a Newcastle official waits to meet him at Newcastle Airport as he gets off his plane,  to take him for his medical.

Maybe we can even get him singed today.

The news today is that fee and terms have been agreed with PSV and that he really wants to come to Newcastle, so that’s good news.

Given he passes his medical this afternoon it’s a done deal and it so happens that Vurnon Anita is a good friend of his – so that should help him to settle in quickly.

    Mitrovic is in the air as we speak
    His height and position ?
    5’11” and sitting in the middle.

  • 3 Ibizatoon // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:34 PM

    Not a gun in sight. Not bundled in a sack.

    Cor, he’s smiling an’ all.

    Looks legit. I hope someone is busy preparing the line – it might just get crossed.

    Someone call the Queen.

  • 4 lochinvar // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:35 PM

    Jib very good.
    However inaccurate.
    He’s in the cockpit as we don’t want to be carrying any passengers next season

  • 5 richyg01 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:35 PM

    Hes smiling coz it ain’t Newcastle Airport lol

    Welcome to Newcastle Widi.
    Please don’t f@ck the personal terms up if already not agreed.

    “GEORDIE 2” YOO HOO

    Well you said call the queen

  • 10 toonicle // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:37 PM

    An exciting summer signing in early july? Is this still newcastle?

  • 11 Blackley and Brownlie // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:37 PM

    Is McClaren becoming the manager we always wanted? I think I’ll wait until a ball’s kicked. I’ll have a good view from my seat in the 1892 club of course. Get your tickets now to avoid disappointment.

  • 12 Belfast // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:37 PM

    Somebody has definitely photoshopped that tiger on to the T-shirt, but other than that it looks real.

  • 13 lochinvar // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:38 PM

    Ed – steady with the excitement – is your key board trembling ?
    I don’t want him ” singed” ( unless he’s a good singer then get him down to the club for Karaoke night ) – signed would be good !

  • 14 firebug666 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:39 PM

    I find it difficult not to get excited by today,s news, two possible signings, of very good players, it the best positive feeling in the last eight years.

    But I can’t help the feeling that I’m waiting for the punchline; I just checked the calendar and it’s defiantly not April.

  • 15 Belfast // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:39 PM

    His black coat from the previous picture is in his suitcase.

  • 16 richyg01 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:39 PM

    Are you sure thats not Carlton Cole!?

    HAHAHA lol

  • 17 toonfan76 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:40 PM

    Question! Where is Mitrovic right now? Does anyone on here have any info on this? Hoping to see Wijnaldum holding up the shirt real soon.

  • 18 Belfast // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:40 PM

    You’d assume that personal terms where already agreed Jazzy. Well hope so anyway.

  • 19 Blackley and Brownlie // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:42 PM

    For all those who can’t or don’t want to go to SJP, don’t worry. Old Blackley is happy to share his opinion. Can’t wait.

    Will try to get to Huddersfield too even though they’ve sold more than they’ve bought. Some fans just aren’t as fortunate as NUFC’s.

    Anyone got a song for our new signing?

  • 26 jazzyp // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:46 PM

    Blackley

    I sit just above you in the L2E section

    Belfast

    I would say your right mate. But I still have a horrible feeling that the board will still find a way to screw this up !

  • 29 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:47 PM

    Sorry to poop on parades mitrovic doesn’t want to come refusing to board the plain after his father cancelled it this morning

  • 35 Lynny // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:49 PM

    Will 5hit in a bag and punch it! It looks like they finally got tgheir act together! Is no-one worried though that this might signal some sales to recoup what we’ve brought in?

  • 36 Noel Worst // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:50 PM

    Don’t see how Sissoko fits in to this team, looks like nimble, fluid interplay is the way we’re going, he’s not a team player and too often dwells on the ball with very little vision, unless he’s moved in to a holding role and grows some knackers to match his physique, I see him leaving.

  • 37 expatmag // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:51 PM

    Sporti
    Would that be PLAIN, flour?

  • 38 corkypants // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:51 PM

    Where is mitrovic flying from and is it a direct flight to newcastle? Dont want him landing in landan there may be another clubs chairman there waiting with playstation

  • 39 Rotonda heights // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:51 PM

    sportiquet5

    well don’t then! Anyway he may have boarded the plane, not the plain.

  • 40 Belfast // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:52 PM

    Yep the tiger is actually real

  • 41 jazzyp // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:52 PM

    Yeah hopefully all the clutter in the first team. Gouffran and Willo for starters

  • 42 Novocastrian66 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:53 PM

    Jamsha; that’s the best of a bad bunch up to now!

  • 43 Belfast // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:53 PM

    Sportiquet a few weeks ago you where working for a sports management company, then you where working in the ticket office. Where are you working now ? The airport ?

  • 44 Noel Worst // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:54 PM

    _______________Krul_______________
    Janmaat___Van Dijk__Lascelles___Haidara
    _________Sissoko___Colback
    ______________Wijnaldum
    _____Ayoze_______________SDJ_____
    _______________Mitrovic

    That I’d love to see.

  • 45 Belfast // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:55 PM

    Are you with an agency by any chance ?

  • 46 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:55 PM

    Sorry PLANE! Nope still with the squad

  • 47 harryfred // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:55 PM

  • 48 spudzzz // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:56 PM

    aha…he has big bag…that means he is ready to take the flight to the us tomorrow 😀

  • 49 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 2:56 PM

  • 53 corkypants // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:03 PM

    Sportiquet you sound like a busy man

    Mitrovic aswell would be so good

  • 54 overtheline // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:03 PM

    I really hope Wij doesm’t get singed as we want him to burn the opposition – not be a sacrifice himself.

  • 55 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:03 PM

    I’m afraid he is not expected in Tyneside today or anytime soon looks like plan c is only option

  • 56 jazzyp // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:03 PM

    Sportiquet5

    Ya gonna look a right tw@t if Mitrovic does show up hahaha

  • 57 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:05 PM

    Never been more sure

  • 58 krijo // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:08 PM

    So anybody know who the 2 players are that got sent home from training after showing up 5 mins late?

  • 59 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:08 PM

    I want him to sign too but the intranet in the office usually informs us if there’s any visitors expected

  • 60 YoungMagpieFromBurnley // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:09 PM

    Finally some movement, great news to wake up too.

    Someone claiming to know more information on what is happening with Mitrovic. I really doubt your theory mate.

  • 61 tequilamag // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:10 PM

    Sportiquet. I wonder why you would have an admin job which sounds dull as f**K and only work part-time at the sports management which sounds like a right old hoot and almost certainly a good little earner.
    Each to their own I suppose

  • 62 Jib // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:10 PM

    Long interview with Matip

    Says how good Schalke have been blah blah

    When he is asked the cruncher “What about Newcastle ?”

    He comes out with the old favourite “who knows what is ahead on the road ?”

  • 63 Jail for Ashley // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:11 PM

    I hope to gawd this does signal the start of some sales, Gouffron, Obertron and Marvoron for starters, back to Ligue 2 obscurity from whence they came.

  • 64 nightfa11 // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:14 PM

    great to see that photo..

    but everyone sayin Mclaren is the manager we always wanted..cmon..the guy just arrived..let him manage a few matches before you start talking crap.. pardew said right things when he arrived..

    seeing what kind of a man someone is, is how he handles himslef, when things go wrong.. so wait..

  • 65 BandB // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:15 PM

    jazzyp

    Today is one of those days when something appears to be going right. As you know, they have been rare.
    I’d enjoy the moment if I was you and not let anything rain on your parade. It’s not a day killer if Mitrovic isn’t on the next plane.
    It is a big bonus if he is. That’s how I think of it.

  • 66 lochinvar // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:15 PM

    If they get these two signed today will they open up SJP so that some fans can give them a proper welcome and to show the world that “we’re back” !

  • 67 sportiquet5 // Jul 10, 2015 at 3:16 PM

    It is dull but pays bills management job is for young lower league players who don’t have an agent so I find them one
