Speaking on his Twitch channel, Fabrice Muamba has been talking up a return to Newcastle for PSG midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

The Dutchman, of course, played for Newcastle during the 2015/16 season before he secured a move to Liverpool where he won a Premier League title and a Champions League winners’ medal.

The midfielder joined PSG in the summer, but unfortunately for the Dutchman, life in the French capital hasn’t quite been what he expected.

Indeed, Wijnaldum has complained about his lack of minutes at PSG, and Muamba believes that Newcastle could strike a deal to bring him back.

What’s been said?

Muamba spoke about a potential return to St James’ Park for Wijnaldum.

“One player who said that he’s frustrated that he isn’t getting enough games at the moment, it’s Wijnaldum. Newcastle, he’s a former Newcastle player who did very well. If Newcastle go out there and put that money on the table they could get him, it’s down to him and if he wants to come and help the Geordie fans and the team to get back to where they’re supposed to be. Georginio Wijnaldum would be a great fit for this Newcastle team, he’s played at St James’ Park and they loved him there,” Muamba said.

Great move

This would be a great move if Newcastle can pull this one off.

The Magpies have been linked with Wijnaldum recently, and as Muamba says, he’d be a great fit.

Think about it, United need more goals from the midfield, and Wijnaldum would certainly provide that.

He netted 11 league goals in his only season at Newcastle, while his 26 strikes at international level show just how clinical he can be.

The Tyneside club should certainly be looking into this move.
