Newcastle fans react on Twitter to Georginio Wijnaldum's performance against Sheffield United

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 Magpies travelled down to Bramall Lane to face Nigel Adkins' men, with Steve McClaren keen to get his players fit ahead of the new Premier League season.

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.
