Liverpool and Newcastle agree fee for Wijnaldum

Liverpool have agreed a £25m deal to sign Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle.

The 25-year-old midfielder, who had four years remaining on his contract at St James’ Park, will have a medical with at Anfield on Friday.

Wijnaldum joined Newcastle for £14.5m from Dutch side PSV in 2015, playing in all 38 of the club’s Premier League games last season and scoring 11 goals but was part of the Newcastle team who got relegated.

Wijnaldum, who began his career at Feyenoord before moving to PSV Eindhoven, has made 30 appearances for the Netherlands.

Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League last season and a 3-1 loss to Sevilla in the Europa League final ensured they will not be playing in European competition in 2016-17.

The Reds are currently on tour in America and play Chelsea (27 July), AC Milan (30 July) and Roma (1 August), before games against Barcelona at Wembley Stadium on 6 August and FSV Mainz 05 a day later in Germany.

Klopp’s side begin their Premier League campaign away at last season’s runners-up Arsenal on 14 August.
