Reds edge ever-close to Spanish defender addition - reports

Published Add your comment

Liverpool are edging ever-closer to signing Spanish defender Jose Enrique from Newcastle United, and have agreed a deflated fee with the magpies, according to the Daily Star.

The defender has voiced his concerns at St James' Park in recent weeks, and Kenny Dalglish's left-back lust could finally be fulfilled as Newcastle bosses finally accept that Enrique wants to leave for Liverpool.

The £5.5 million placed on the table by Liverpool has so far been treated with caution by the Magpies, but as tensions grow between player and club, the deal has become more desirable.


If the deal went through, the final offer would present a near £1 million loss for Newcastle, as Enrique was originally signed for £6.3 million at St. James' Park.

But the defender has been unable to agree terms over a new contract, which ends at the end of next season, so Pardew and co. are expected to take the money from Liverpool while it is on the table.
