The brother of Newcastle United star Georginio Wijnaldum has dropped a massive hint regarding the 25-year-old's prospective switch to Liverpool.

Newcastle and Liverpool were reported by Sky Sports to have agreed a £25 million deal for the Netherlands international on Thursday morning.

Neither club has confirmed the move as of yet, but Wijanldum's brother Giordon has effectively let the cat out of the bag it seems with his latest tweet.

Giordon took to Twitter and posted an image of his brother in a Liverpool strip, with the message '#WelcomeGeorginio' emblazoned on the photo.

The former PSV Eindhoven man made an 11-minute cameo for Newcastle in the Magpies 2-2 draw with Doncaster Rovers last night.

Wijnaldum would be Jurgen Klopp's fifth summer signing if the deal goes through - and their second most expensive of the window, behind Sadio Mane's £34 million switch from Southampton earlier in July.

Liverpool have also signed Joel Matip, Loris Karius and Ragnar Klavan this summer, but Reds supporters will still be hungry for more additions before September's deadline.
