      Liverpool complete Georginio Wijnaldum capture

      @LynchMDavid




      Liverpool Football Club have today completed the signing of Netherlands international Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle United.

      The 25-year-old has signed a long-term deal with the Reds to seal a return to the Premier League and will now jet out to join the club's ongoing tour of the United States.

      After completing a switch to Anfield on Friday, he told Liverpoolfc.com: “I’m really excited because Liverpool is a big club with a great history and it’s always a dream to play for as big a club as Liverpool.”

      He also commented on the prospect of working alongside Jürgen Klopp, adding: “[He seems] a great man - from the outside - because I don’t know how he works yet and I have to work with him.

      “[But] I always love to watch him, his passion as a trainer, I like how he enjoys the game. He gives something back to the group [with his passion] so I look forward to working with him.”

      Wijnaldum scored 11 goals in 38 league appearances in his maiden season in England following a move from PSV Eindhoven last summer.

      The Dutchman, who also previously represented Feyenoord, has 30 international caps to his name.

      He joins Loris Karius, Joel Matip, Marko Grujic, Sadio Mane, Ragnar Klavan and Alex Manninger as a fresh face in Klopp's squad ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.

      Klopp: Wijnaldum can be a great player for us

      Sam Williams
      @SamWilliams14




      Jürgen Klopp is delighted to have Georginio Wijnaldum on board at Liverpool, with the boss declaring: “I think he can be a great player for us.”

      The Reds completed the signing of Wijnaldum from Newcastle United on Friday, with the Netherlands international putting pen to paper on a long-term deal before flying out to meet up with his new teammates in the USA.

      The 25-year-old is Liverpool’s seventh new arrival of the summer, and Klopp is excited about the prospect of working with the versatile midfielder - who he says has the appetite to improve further at Anfield.

      "I am so happy that we have got him and he can join us now in the USA,” the manager told Liverpoolfc.com.

      “I think he can be a great player for us. He has already shown some really good moments in his career but the most exciting and important thing for me and my staff is that there is still so much extra 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.”

      Wijnaldum impressed in his first season in England following his move from PSV Eindhoven to Newcastle last summer, scoring 11 goals in 38 Premier League appearances despite the Magpies’ relegation.

      And Klopp expects the experience of his new No.5 to stand him in good stead at Liverpool.

      The boss added: “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."

      If he can approach his career here in the way that Kuyt did then I agree Luke, he could become a fan favourite fairly quickly.

      Kuyt has been speaking very highly of him, a player he really rates
