Georginio Wijnaldum is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer - and NewcastleWorld asked Newcastle United fans if they’d like to see the Dutchman back at St James’ Park.

Georginio Wijnaldum’s Paris Saint-Germain nightmare is set to come this summer after both parties agreed to part ways.

The Netherlands international joined the French giants from Liverpool last year but failed to win a regular spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting XI.

Former Nice boss Christophe Galtier recently succeeded Pochettino and has told Wijnaldum he is free to leave the club.

PSG are reportedly prepared to loan him out for the season with Jose Mourinho’s Roma showing strong interest.

But what about Newcastle? Should Eddie Howe attempt to bring Wijnaldum back to St James’ Park?

The 31-year-old was a popular figure during his one season at Newcastle, despite it ending in relegation to the Championship.

Wijnaldum played in all of United’s 38 Premier League games and scored 11 goals before joining Liverpool.

It saw Newcastle make around a £11million profit on the midfielder after signing him from PSV Eindhoven for £14.5m.

Wijnaldum basically won it all with the Reds during his five years at Anfield - lifting the Premier League and Champions League title.

Would Newcastle United take Gini Wijnaldum back?

So, out of interest, NewcastleWorld asked Magpies fans if they would take Wijnaldum back - and the response was unanimous.

“Yes in a heartbeat,” said @steve935566c. I’d take him on loan, great player,” @StefanCatton replied. “Just isn’t getting a look in at PSG, he’d be outstanding once again for us in our midfield.”

@BurstOfTheStar believes Wijnaldum would “thrive under Howe’s management”.

@mbizzle39 added: “I absolutely would - supremely talented and great mentality. One of the best players we’ve ever had.

“But he clearly has no interest in returning and we’re no longer a club that needs to try and sign players who don’t have their hearts set on playing for the club.”
