With the patience of the fans fast running thin with the lack of transfer activity of the club, it will be an absolute delight for Newcastle United fans to see a bid finally being placed.
The bid so placed, according to the Daily Mail, is for the highly rated 24-year-old, PSV midfielder, Georgina Wijnaldum.
The Dutch midfielder has a contract with his current club until 2018, so surely there will be no concessions on the asking price.

However, in 220 appearances in Eredivisie, the midfielder has bagged 63 goals and 24 assists. Not a bad record by any standards, especially for a team that hasn't had a goal scoring midfielder after the departure of Yohan Cabaye.
But is the mentioned £15m price tag a bit too much? One wouldn't think so. The midfielder is fast, has international experience, and most of all, is young. You wouldn't bet against him meeting the standards of the Premier League.
As per the reports, Georginio Wijnaldum has been invited to Tyneside to see if he does after all want to move.
But with the player interested in a move to the league, the club being keen to sign the player, and the fans wanting nothing more than a new signing, the Toon Army could finally have something to cherish and look forward to in the near future.
However, the one thing time has taught the Geordies is; never believe a transfer till you see him in the jersey.
Do you think Wijnaldum will finally fill the vacuum in the Newcastle midfield? Is he the start of many signings to come? Is he worth the investment? Have your say in the comments below!
