Liverpool have completed the signing of Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle United.
The 25-year old passed a medical on Thursday and details of the deal were finalized on Friday before he put pen to paper on the five-year deal worth £25m.
In a breakdown of the deal, it is reported that Liverpool will pay an agreed fee of £23m, while the remaining £2m will come in form of add-ons.
Following the completion of the deal, Wijnaldum is now expected to join the rest of the Liverpool squad for their pre-season tour of the United States, and could make his debut next Wednesday against Chelsea in a test match.
Reacting the the signing, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said: “I am so happy we have got him. I think he can become a great player for us. There is still so much to come from him.
“When I talked to him I could tell that he knows we have to work together to get this level out of him to all be successful for the team.
“He has played a lot for his country already, been captain at a young age in Holland and also been involved in a tough Premier League season so this experience gives him a good foundation for the challenge here – which everybody knows is huge.
“He can play a few positions for us and players that come through the Dutch system usually have a good tactical understanding and flexibility. That’s really important.
“I can’t wait to get him on the training pitch and for the fans to see him play in a Liverpool shirt.”
