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.
