Newcastle United have reportedly decided against making a move to re-sign Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool during the ongoing transfer window.

The Netherlands international has been an influential player for the Reds over the past two years but the arrivals of Naby Keita and Fabinho have led to claims that he could part ways with the club.

As such, the Magpies have been tipped to re-acquire his services after his success with them during the 2015/16 season but the hierarchy are said to have no plans of doing the same, Chronicle Live reports.

Rafael Benitez's side have been rather quiet in terms of spending in the transfer market this summer but they have made some valuable signings in the form of Martin Dubravka, Ki Sung-Yeung and Kenedy - the latter joining on a season-long loan from Chelsea.

Wijnaldum has made nearly 100 appearances during his past two seasons with Liverpool, scoring eight goals in the process. During the same period, he has become a regular with his national side and he is just two caps shy of making 50 appearances for the Dutch.
