Reds agree Jones fee

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are poised to seal a £2.3million deal for Brad Jones after the Middlesbrough goalkeeper passed a medical on Monday.

The 28-year-old Australia international travelled to the north-west to discuss personal terms and undergo physical tests, which Liverpool confirmed he successfully came through.

Liverpool confirmed the fee on their official website and stated that Jones should finalise his move on Tuesday.

It is understood the deal had been held up by a difference of opinion over how the fee was to be paid.

Reds boss Roy Hodgson has earmarked Jones, who qualifies as a 'home-grown' player under the new rules after joining the Teessiders as a trainee, as suitable cover for first-choice goalkeeper Jose Reina.

Jones made 24 league appearances in the Championship for Middlesbrough last season, his most in a single campaign during his eight years at the Teesside club, during which he has spent loan spells with Blackpool, Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham and Stockport.
