Georginio Wijnaldum will today fly to the USA to link up with his Newcastle United team-mates.

The midfielder joined the club last week from PSV Eindhoven in a £14.5million deal.

Wijnaldum, however, returned to his native Holland after signing a five-year deal at St James’s Park.

But the 24-year-old is now ready to join the club’s pre-season tour.

And Wijnaldum will meet his new colleagues in California ahead of Saturday’s game against Sacramento Republic.
