Georginio Wijnaldum has refused to reveal whether his Newcastle contract includes a relegation release clause but admits his future at the club is “unclear”.
Newcastle spent £14.7million to sign Wijnaldum from PSV Eindhoven last summer, but the midfielder has struggled for consistency throughout the club’s turgid campaign.
The Holland international has scored nine goals and registered four assists, although his last strike came in the win over West Ham in January.
And with the Magpies six points from safety, the 25-year-old is likely to be linked with a host of clubs should the Newcastle drop into the Championship.
“My role is indeed still a bit unclear. But I am no different in this situation,” he told Dutch publication Metro Nieuws.
“Do I have a clause that I can leave if relegated? I do not give information about what is in my contract.
“I do not think about it until the end of the season and focus on the upcoming matches. But the club is working hard to put everything right and I am confident that we will be okay.”
