Liverpool 'agree deal for international keeper'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have signed Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Jones, according to reports.

The Daily Mail suggests Jones has agreed to join the Reds in a deal worth £2 million.

Speculation has been rife over the last few weeks that the Australian international would make the move to Anfield, and it looks like Roy Hodgson has got his man.

Jones will provide extra cover for Liverpool number one Pepe Reina, and could play an important role as the Merseysiders yet again fight for glory on four fronts this season.

The 28-year-old stopper came through the youth system at the Riverside after being recommended to Middlesbrough by then first choice Mark Schwarzer.

He succeeded his mentor as Boro's keeper when Schwarzer departed for Fulham in 2008 and has gone on to represent his country's senior side on two occasions

Jones was selected in the Socceroos' squad for the World Cup, but had to return home from the tournament for personal reasons.
