Newcastle United's new boys will take time to gel but the side will be a force going forward in the Premier League, summer recruit Georginio Wijnaldum has said.

Newcastle have reportedly spent over £50 million (Dh281m) this summer on Chancel Mbemba, Wijnaldum, Florian Thauvin, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ivan Toney.

"We have good players but now we must make sure we show we are a good team," the 24-year-old Wijnaldum, the third most expensive signing in the club's history, was quoted as saying by the Chronicle.

“When a lot of players come to a club it can be difficult to gel because you don’t know each other properly.

“However, we are going to train hard to make sure we do know each other. Then we can be a big team going forward,” the Netherlands international added.

Newcastle currently sit second-bottom in the league table after collecting just two points from four games but Wijnaldum hoped the team will now kick on.

“We are focused on everything. You have to have confidence going forward and feel you can win a trophy. We have that chance here,” the former PSV Eindhoven skipper said.
