Wijnaldum To Have Medical After Fee And Terms Agreed


News coming in from PSV that their captain 24-year-old Georginio Wijnaldum has been given permission to have a medical which if successful will complete his move to Newcastle United.

Georginio Wijnaldum – to have Newcastle medical

This is the Tweet the PSV club have sent out:

“PSV are nearing an agreement with Newcastle United and Wijnaldum has been given permission to finalize negotiations and undergo a medical examination,”

In order to have a medical it means that Newcastle have both agreed a fee with PSV for the talented midfielder, and also have agreed terms with Georginio – so this is looking really good.

However Sky Sports is reporting it’s their understanding that no fee has been agreed yet but that Wijnaldum has left his hotel in France and is on his way to Newcastle to have his medical.

It’s understood that Wijnaldum told PSV that he wanted to move to Newcastle, and it looks like Vurnon Anita, who is said to be a close friend convinced him to move.

Well done Anita.

And with the news we are very close to signing Aleksandar Mitrovic, with the latest news from Belgium today saying we have offered him a five year deal – both players could be on the plane to America on Sunday.

That would be something.

But it’s starting to look like that is very possible – obviously Lee Charnley has had those four cups of very strong Italian coffee we talked about yesterday.

If Lee can pull off these two deals it will be massive for him and massive for Newcastle United.

Comments welcome.

    Rumours in Spain that the delays to the Nicolas Otamendi transfer to Man U from Valencia is because we have jumped in .
    He is a big pal of Colo and worked with Ian Cathro.

    If we can get Mitrovic and Wjnaldum, I will be pleased.

    YET we still need two centre backs.

    Get rid of some of the dead weight like Riviere, Obertan, Williamson, Cisse

    I personally would love to sign Austin, Mitrovic, Wjnaldum, and two centre backs.

    Ok its an expensive window but we would have a cracking team providing we get the right centre backs.

    ——————– Krul
    Janmaat- ?????? – ?????? – Dummett
    Sissoko – Wjnaldum – De Jong – Aarons
    ———- Austin – Mitrovic

    Subs – Darlow, Coloccini, Anita, Tiote, Colback, Cabella, Perez

    Then you have likes of Haidara, Abeid, Lascelles STaylor, Gouffran, Good, Bigirmana, Satka, Armstrong behind these players.

    Vuckic, Ferguson and Marveaux can go back out on loan for final years.

    Jib, while I love the idea of of Otamendi coming here I’m pretty sure his asking price is through the roof and why would he come here over Utd? That would be a first. Would love it to be true but there’s another rumour that we’re pouncing on a left-back Utd and Chelski were after. This is surely agents using our name and knowledge that we’re after certain positions to speed up bids from other clubs.

    Croftus,
    I think the signing of Wijnaldum spells the end of Sissoko here. It is Sissoko more than anyone that I see Wijnaldum as a direct competitor for. From reports I’ve read Wijnaldum was wary of being in competition with De Jong for a starting spot, so he must have had those fears allayed, so for me it is Sissoko that will miss out – particularly if we get a new wide player in as well.

    Tsunki,
    I hope Riviere goes, but can’t see anyone buying him, or matching the £0/40k he will be on a week. Maybe he will end up being another Luque/Xisco who both had better Premier league goalscoring records and end up seeing out his contract through a variety of loans.

    Just spotted I have Rivi on between £0 and £40k a week. Ha, he is probably worth closer to nothing, but it was meant to say £30/40k

    Crftus,
    If Colo and Saylor are our centre halves, then Tiote has to start. Aarons can’t play that role either, it is a waste of a player.

    with Mitrovic we will have finally some power and heading ability in box…i love it, Matip is 6 ft 4 in….so I think SM identified our weaknesses well…

    McLaren : “We have got one or two positions we need to fill desperately, so we might need to buy about four or five – that would be great – but if not, we’ll just have to wait.”

    Is he talking about the Board or the team ?

    Guess if this mornings latest news is good then he’s talking about the team.

    That still leaves three more players to arrive if my maths serves me well.

    Morning fellow fans. Haven’t been posting on here for a long while but thought I would jump in now saying as we seem to be actually doing something of note in the transfer window. Just wondering if any of you think that this new board of directors ( including the head coach) have given this club (and Ashley) a much needed kick up the rear. I personally think it may be the influence of our head coach.

    @5 lilong

    i think sissoko is a great player if played in cm but i do agree everything seems right for him to leave without being missed at all now !

    we have more effective players than him in his natural possition and tbf he would never be first choice there !

    add to the fact that “throw your cash around” liverpool are after him and knowing them we could almost double what we paid for wij 😉 it makes sense.

    he will want reg first team also for his international career.

    With team improvement I think you’ll find Cisse would be an asset to the forward line once again. There are good reasons why Cisse banged them in for fun one season but then didn’t appear the next.

    Croftus,
    I personally don’t think Sissoko is all that. He is a powerful runner, but has little else to his game. His shooting is more hopeful than accurate, his tackling in non existent, marking is shocking and his range of passing is limited to say the least. The only position I’d see him playing here now is out wide on the right, and I’d much prefer to have a proper wide man out there then someone who gets in by default.

    If he were to levee, I’d expect a replacement to come in, maybe not like for like positionally, but still a player in, probably out wide – meaning I’d want 2 wide players in.

    On Matip, has it all gone quiet with his possible transfer? Maybe if we get our first 2 signings in, that may show Matip that we have the ambition to move forward and he is an important part of the progression process. If a player truly feels wanted and can see genuine attempts to succeed, the that may just be enough to convince him to sign.

    I’ll wait until the inks dry on the contract and the lads are pictured at SJP in Black n White.

    On that, Ed get that pic of Windi in a red n white strip down. Away strip or Dutch strip will do fine, thank you.

    Are these marquee players to sell season tickets and then it’s back to the norm? Or is our new head coach going to push for more 10m plus players to really give us something to get excited about when the season starts! We live in hope.

    think ur right about sissoko going if wijnaldium comes in
    but on riviere I don’t think he has a value unless he goes back to france
    but he has some good attributes I think some time with black and some shooting coaching could see him become a useful squad player
    McLaren favours a 433 and rivieres best pos is wide left
    if we are going to take cups seriously and rotate the squad properly he could prove to be useful
    I would like to see get another year with us

    Im more of a mitrovic fan though i would take either, having watched some videos this morning a lot of his chances do seem to come from absolutely torrid defending but his headed goals and finishing seem great, albeit we havent watched him all season and cant say for how many goals hes scored how many times has he raked it wide or been indecisive and lost possession.

    He is only 20 though, now is definitely the time for a step up
