Georginio Wijnaldum is ready to return to the Premier League on loan in January if PSG approve a temporary deal.

And he has publicly admitted that he is not happy, to the NOS: ‘I cannot say that I am completely happy, because the situation is not what I wanted.

“But that’s football and I’ll have to learn to deal with it. I am a fighter. I have to stay positive and work hard to turn it around.
“I’ve played a lot in recent years, I was always fit and also did very well. This is something different and it takes some getting used to.
“I was really looking forward to the next step and then this happens. It is very difficult.’
As things stand, PSG are not expected to let Wijnaldum leave next month, even though he is open to a move, according to Sky Sports.
The midfielder’s playing time has been irregular since he came to PSG in the summer
Arsenal is seen as one of the clubs interested in the midfielder.
Wijnaldum has been an integral player for Liverpool in recent years and Jurgen Klopp was keen to keep the 31-year-old last summer.
His move to new pastures has so far failed to bear fruit and given his vocal dissatisfaction with life under Mauricio Pochettino, he is ready to return to the Premier League in a bid to get more playing time.
Wijnaldum is battling with Marco Verratti, Danilo Pereira, Ander Herrera, Idrissa Gueye and Leandro Paredes for a spot in the PSG first team.
He remains an important player for the Dutch National Team and was one of the standout stars during the European Championship.
