Reported Newcastle United target Georginio Wijnaldum has provided a potential hint on social media amid links to the 21-year-old, Sven Botman. 

The Toon have been linked with the Paris Saint-Germain midfielder over a possible reunion almost six years on from his departure, however, it was the links to Botman which saw Wijnaldum drop the hint.

Instagram account ‘pubitysport‘ posted a mock image of Botman in a Newcastle shirt following the latest claim of the Toon reportedly submitting a fresh bid on Friday for the Dutchman.

Newcastle are believed to have already had a bid for the Lille defender rejected and it seems they are wasting no time in their efforts to bolster Eddie Howe’s defence following a disastrous first half of the season.

Fans of the Magpies may have spotted the player in question, Botman, ‘like’ the Instagram post linking with a potential switch to Tyneside.

And the eagle-eyed would have spotted his fellow countryman, Wijnaldum, also ‘liking’ the transfer post amid the rumours linking him with a possible return to St. James’ Park.

The 31-year-old only spent one season with Newcastle but the midfielder was able to return an impressive 11 goals and five assists in his 38 Premier League appearances (via Transfermarkt).

However, having joined Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG last summer, Wijnaldum has struggled to find his feet in France with just one goal and assist in his 16 Ligue 1 appearances.

With Kieran Trippier becoming the first arrival on Tyneside under the new regime, has Wijnaldum dropped a hint his fellow Dutchman could be heading to Tyneside this month?
