Following our earlier story, Liverpool have confirmed they will conclude a deal for Sotirios Kyrgiakos of AEK Athens subject to a medical.
Speaking to the official website Rafael Benitez said:
“We have nearly done the deal subject to a medical. He is a player with experience who can hopefully help us in defence.
“He has experience in British football and Rangers. After that with Frankfurt and the national team. He’s a good player in the air, strong and aggressive. We were looking for a player with experience.
“He will have the medical this week, it has to be before the weekend.”
