Georginio Wijnaldum opened the scoring in Newcastle's 2-2 draw against Sheffield United today.
Newcastle United's pre-season preparations continued earlier today with a 2-2 draw against League One outfit Sheffield United.
The newly-appointed Newcastle boss will have been happy to see new signing Georginio Wijnaldum open the scoring, before fellow Dutchman Siem de Jong got his name on the scoresheet too.
Wijnaldum is Newcastle's marquee signing of the summer having helped PSV Eindhoven to the Eredivisie title last season, and many expect the Netherlands international to continue his impressive displays in a Newcastle shirt.
The 24-year-old has been superb in pre-season, adding another goal in the draw against Sheffield United - and fans are delighted with his impact so far.
Supporters took to Twitter during and after the draw to laud Wijnaldum, with many believing that he could be Newcastle's best signing for many years.
Some are preaching caution ahead of the new season, but Newcastle fans are certainly excited to see how Wijnaldum performs in the Premier League.
Here are some of the reactions from Newcastle fans to Wijnaldum's display against Sheffield United earlier today...
Decent game to day, weaknesses are obvious, Wijnaldum looks a top player though #nufc— Richard! (@RichardjNUFC) July 26, 2015
#nufc Wijnaldum is looking like a great signing so far. Hope McClaren delivers. Not sure though....— Toby (@Tjsmith100) July 26, 2015
I know Wijnaldum has looked good in pre-season but reserve judgement. De Jong looled class last pre-season then hardly fit. #NUFC— Rory Faulds (@rory0120) July 26, 2015
Fancy Wijnaldum will score 10+ goals in the league this season, proper goal scoring centre mid that we've lacked for a long time #nufc— Kenneth Liddle (@kenLIDDLE) July 26, 2015
Great to see that Wijnaldum's scored again, could quite possibly be the best attacking midfielder the clubs had in a long time! #NUFC— Chris (@betamax_bandit) July 26, 2015
Another goal for Wijnaldum! He's looking a great purchase #NUFC— Ben Temple (@Trundlez) July 26, 2015
