Agger close to new deal

Published Add your comment

Daniel Agger is believed to be close to signing a new long-term contract with Liverpool.

The Danish central defender has been involved in a lengthy saga over his future, and it was feared he was waiting to buy himself out of the final year of his contract.

But his agent Per Steffensen has recently visited Liverpool for discussions with manager Rafael Benitez, who said: "These conversations have gone really well and we are very close. Maybe we will soon have a solution."

Agger has been linked with AC Milan, Juventus and Barcelona in recent months when talks were seemingly stalled over the defender's demands thought to be a wage rise from £50,000 a week to £70,000 a week.

Liverpool recently agreed new deals with Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt while verbal agreements have been made with youngsters Nathan Ecclestone, Peter Gulacsi, Krisztian Nemeth and Nabil El Zhar.
