Liverpool transfer target Georginio Wijnaldum is not moving to the Reds, according to PSV Eindhoven director Marcel Brands.
The midfielder has been in fantastic form this season,contributing 13 league goals, and is reportedly a transfer target for numerous clubs across Europe.
"We have not had any contact with Liverpool about Wijnaldum," Brands told Sky Sports.
"We hope to keep the rest of the team together now because we are playing in the Champions League next season. I hope we don’t have to sell any other players."

The PSV captain has led the Dutch club to their first league title since 2008 and is being linked heavily with a move to the Merseyside club in question. The midfield dynamo has chipped in with a goal almost every other game, and such stats could solve Liverpool's lack of quality in front of goal.
The 24-year-old admitted he wanted to move this summer earlier this season and it doesn't seem like his mind has changed. Teammate Memphis Depay is already on his way to Premier League giants Manchester United for £25 million and Wijnaldum could fetch a similar fee.

After the departure of retiring Mark van Bommel, and sale of Kevin Strootman, Wijnaldum took the PSV captaincy, a position he has held since 2013. The Dutch international's mixture of leadership and finishing ability makes him a perfect fit for Liverpool.
However, the player's movement and fancy flicks could mean the Reds are signing another Philippe Coutinho. No bad thing necessarily, but a team full of the same type of player rarely wins the Premier League title, just ask Arsenal fans.
With Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard on his way to LA Galaxy the Merseyside club will need to find another midfielder who can replace the local lad's goals. It could be that the man best suited to do so comes from the Eredivisie.
