According to reports in The Mirror today, there's a war going on in the North East for the signature of PSV's Dutch attacking midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.

The highly-rated playmaker has 40 goals in 109 appearances for the Dutch club, with three in 19 at international level, taking over from Mark Van Bommel as PSV captain in 2013/14. 

Despite being linked with Man Utd, it seems Newcastle and Sunderland are battling it out to be first in line to sign Wijnaldum, with Mackems boss Dick Advocaat set to smash the club's transfer record to bring the £15m rated player to the Stadium of Light.
