The latest news this morning is that Sky Sports are reporting that Newcastle have agreed a fee of around £25M with Liverpool for Wijnaldum, after talks are said to have gone on into the small hours of today between the clubs.
Newcastle played Wijnaldum last night for 11 minutes in the 2-2 draw at Doncaster and that could be the last time Gini plays for Newcastle, if the news this morning is accurate, which it appears to be.
It looks like it’s a straight cash deal and the structure of the payment – Newcastle want all £25M up front – is also worked out, with Sky Sports’ Keith Downie reporting Gini will travel to Liverpool today for his medical.
