JOVANOVIC CONFIRMS LIVERPOOL DEAL
By Football Talk.
Standard Leige striker Milan Jovanovic has confirmed he has agreed to sign for Liverpool on a free transfer at the end of the season.
The 28 year old Jovanovic states a 3-year deal is agreed, but he is yet to undergo a medical.
“we reached agreement for 3 years with Liverpool with the option to extend by a further year. I have yet to undergo a medical, but that shouldn’t be a problem. I don’t have any physical problems and I’m feeling perfectly fit.”
‘I opted to sign for Liverpool because they’re one of the biggest teams around in Europe. They’re definitely among the 10 biggest sides. I’m absolutely delighted that the deal is completed. From now on, I can focus on Standard Liege again. I want to leave the club in a good way.’
Earlier Jovanovic’s agent Zoran Stojadinovic claimed a deal had been agreed following talks with Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.
“We have spoken with Rafa Benitez and he convinced us about his project for the club, Milan speaks the language and adaptation will not be a problem for him when he moves to England.”
It seems Rafa Benitez has snapped up the player just days after ruling Liverpool out of the race to sign Marouane Chamakh.
