Newcastle United midfielder Vurnon Anita has praised the club's signing of Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum.
The Magpies sealed a switch for the 24-year-old in the region of £15m from PSV Eindhoven, and Anita has revealed that - after playing with and against the midfielder - he knows that the club have signed a quality player.
He told the club's official website: "Gini is a very good technical player, someone who can score goals and who will be a good guy for the group, too. I've played with him for the national team at youth level, and a lot against him.
"He is fast, can play one-against-one and is a very intelligent footballer. He has experience, has played in some very big games already even though he is only 24 and can have a big impact on our squad, taking our level higher.
"We have signed a player who was the captain of PSV and this is a great move for both him and Newcastle. It's a key signing for the club and shows that we want to have a much better season than last year. Gini is a quality player and someone who can have a great impact on the group."
Wijnaldum made 152 appearances for PSV, scoring 56 goals.
