Can Newcastle Get Wijnaldum Back For Next Season – It’s Possible

Midfielders Naby Keïta and Fabinho have already moved this summer to Liverpool, and it could mean that former Newcastle midfielder Gini Wijnaldum could be crowded out next season on Merseyside as competition for places increases.

So it may have been expected there would be a report that Rafa Benitez wanted Wijnaldum back on Tyneside since it seems just what we need – a creative midfield player.

And that article has come from Turkish Football who report there are some stories in Turkey that Newcastle have indeed bid for the player.

Gini Wijnaldum – could he return on loan?

Turkish powerhouse Fenerbahce are also reported to be very interested in taking the Dutch International to Turkey this summer.

Gini played well in his only season at Newcastle when he scored 11 goals in 40 appearances for us with 5 assists – but of course, we were relegated and he left.

He’s a class player and that’s what Rafa wants in the Newcastle squad – a lot more class.

We sold Gini to Liverpool for £25M two years ago and of course, we cannot afford to bring him back at that price.

But Rafa still has one loan available from a Premier League club, having brought Chelsea winger Robert Kenedy back on loan for the season earlier this week.

So maybe the way Newcastle can get Gini back would be on a loan move?

The Chronicle has reported we have not made an approach to Liverpool to sign him – as reported in Turkey.

But it will be interesting to see if Rafa wants him back because given the Newcastle team we have at the moment he could offer some real class in midfield.

Rafa also said in early 2016 that the Dutchman was such a good player he could play in several different positions – so he is versatile too.

And Rafa has good ties with Liverpool – his former club – to make a loan deal happen.

What do you think?

    You can carry on evading it and being facetious but it’s become evident you darent answer the questions because you’re going to look stupid (…er).

    If you aren’t really man enough to spit out what you are trying to imply then your grievances about being ribbed for being a downtrodden househusband with no say in being able to watch TV to watch a match are pretty redundant wouldn’t you say?

    Why is it we ( or lazy arsed journos) seem intent of us bringing back players ,who lets be honest took us down?
    For every goal gini scored there was two half arsed games when he didn’t appear to give a shi@e.
    Maybe if we stopped chasing players who have bailed they would think twice about bailing out in future.
    If things went gang busters at Liverpool / palace do you think agents would be sniffing around us ?
    F@uck them.
    Would take a player with Richie’s attitude anyday over the colos duffs town sends and ginis of this messed up league of greed

    Spoof give yourself a rest and ignore it. I’ve cornered the whingeing moaner and he’s being found out for complaining about nothing. He spends his time winding up the blog with his crass complaints and petty remarks but the point of the blog is to call out the validity of these opinions or they are just the product of a WUM. If you are bored do something else.

    If he winds you up to that extent then why not take your own advice and ignore it or do something else rather that persevere with your petty squabbling which is spoiling the blog for rest of us.

    Your as wrong as you can get there mate, an opinion is something which we are all entitled to, you may not like someone’s opinion, you may not agree with but it is theirs and they are entitled to it, and just because someone’s view or opinion differs from your own doesn’t mean they are a WUM, you have just made a fool of yourself, so do yourself and everybody else a favour and either button it or bugger off elsewhere.

    Everyday now we’ve heard from Jesper whining about Joselu, the length of time it takes to get a deal done and deadwood, some of who have even left the club. When he is asked who he thinks is to blame for this he won’t answer, just a load of nonsense about Slimani, Rondon and gender stereo typing, and always followed by the gut churning emoji he leaves, I didn’t think this was possible but he has become even more irrelevant than Veltman!

    He’s basically blaming Benitez for our transfer policy but knows he’ll get shot down if he says so with facts, so he won’t say it but he’ll just carry on leaving snidey comments about it every morning while hiding behind gender stereo type BS.

    Again, my advice is to ignore these rumours. So far none of them have been right, unless you count the Kenedy one which was hardly a secret.
    Already we must have reached sixty alleged targets and as per usual, each time a non target goes elsewhere, people get upset that we’ve missed another target.
    Has nobody noticed that whenever Rafa is asked about targets he clearly states ‘I cannot talk about names’? A sensible approach because a bidding war isn’t wise when backed by le knacka.
    Therefore these stories that Rafa wants so and so are simply made up. They don’t know, because he always gives the same answer – no names.
    We’ll know when they turn up at SJP for a medical and signing.
    Don’t be conned. These journalists know nothing about Rafa’s plans.

    Calling tsunki a bully is exactly what jesper wants, that’s his only card.

    It’s far from bullying by the way, if you have an opinion that goes massively against the grain then you’ve got to be prepared for the backlash and questioning that you’re going to receive.

    Strange how these questions are never answered. Hmmm.

    I agree with Bobby that no-one knows what is happening on the transfer front.

    My personal opinion is that there won’t be any more incoming until a few more have gone out eg Colback, Saviet Mbemba, Mitrovic, Selz

    Meanwhile in Denmark .

    By the way Jesper, who do you think is responsible for the poor signings and what action do you think should be taken?

    We need to sell players. You can only have a 25 man squad in the PL so there’s no point bringing more in until we free up space. What we can’t afford is to have a string of Colback’s doing nothing and bleeding the club.

    If Conte is sacked will that make it easier to sign some of their players you guys think?

    The point is it’s an opinion, it may be outlandish but it is an entitlement, I would much rather people just ignore it, do that and normally it stops, but Tsunki can’t do that, challenge a view by all means, but Tsunki never let’s it drop, he’s like a rottweiler with a bone, and is that fair for the rest of us who wish to use the blog for recreational purposes.

    I rarely post nowadays, and when I do it’s a quick comment here and there, why do you think that is, I’ll tell you, it’s due to people like Tsunki who rarely post football related posts and whose sole aim is to cause havoc and bad feeling, he and his type spoil the blog, people with views which I find absurd I can cope with and ignore, but the likes of Tsunki, well the blog would be better off without them, well that’s me done for a while, let’s see how Tsunki justifies classing people as WUM’s due to them having a different opinion.

    Spoof you have missed the point entirely probably by design. Jesper is avoiding making an opinion. He’s just complaining. When he has an opinion I’ll listen to your fatuous condemnation.maybe.

    And as for rarely football related? Do you understand this is a nufc blog? Do you get that? Not football not rounders it’s NUFC. I just take exception to a WUM who doesn’t watch us play when mealtimes conflict and makes crass remarks about the club’s goings on without actually expressing his opinion. Is that defensible? Have a go.

    Oldgit – chipped in well, good opportunism. Useless as ever though.

    Howay jesper end the agony, prove you’ve got the bottle tod say your opinion. Apparently your evasiveness is causing boredom.
