Newcastle set to sign Georginio Wijnaldum

French daily newspaper L’Equipe has learned that Premier League strugglers Newcastle United have a deal in place to sign Netherlands international midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Magpies were desperate to reinforce their ranks after narrowly avoiding the drop last season and they have reportedly had a €20 million offer accepted by PSV Eindhoven.

Wijnaldum, who captained the Dutch giants on the road to the first Eredivisie title in seven years, will sign a long-term deal at St James’ Park worth €3 million per season.

The 24-year-old has been widely regarded as one of Netherlands’ hottest prospects for several years now, and he is finally set to realise a big club move.

Wijnaldum came through the youth ranks at Feyenoord and went on to score 23 goals in 113 league appearances before completing a €5 million move to PSV Eindhoven in 2011.

The central midfielder continued the rich vein of form at Phillips Stadium, netting 41 times in 109 Eredivisie outings, while starting five matches at the 2014 World Cup for the Netherlands national football team.
