Liverpool are still waiting for the decision of Belgian World Cup star Divock Origi as his future plans remain in the balance, according to Sky Sports.
With Origi expected to be back in training with his current club Lille on Monday, his father, Mike Origi, says that any decision will be confirmed before then. Although Liverpool are currently in the best position to sign him, there is another unnamed side who are showing interest and are being weighed up by Origi.
The Lille forward flew to America earlier this week to have a medical with the Anfield based club, as they prepare for their pre-season tour in Boston.
Buy to let
Liverpool have said that if the 19-year-old Belgian international did complete a move to the club, he would be loaned back to Lille to gain more first team experience. With the arrival of Lambert and Lallana at the club, there may be little opportunity for Origi to shine in the Premier League this season, but he has the potential to go on to become just as potent as his international teammates Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke.
Hull City transfer news
Hull City are looking to strengthen their defence this summer with the signing of Cameroon international Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik from Rennes, reports Sky Sports.
The 25-year-old has featured for Rennes 107 times in four years after moving from Le Havre in 2010 after earning promotion to Ligue 1 with the team in 2008. The former French under 21 player, who decided to play for Cameroon at senior level has five international caps, earned since 2012. He was not part of the Cameroon side that failed to get out of their group at the World Cup.
Transfer deal done
Evian-Thonon-Gaillard have completed the signing of Rosenborg’s Nicki Bille Nielsen to become the fourth Danish player for the Alps based side reports the official Ligue 1 website. The Danish international will join up with his cousin, Daniel Wass, who currently plays for the Ligue 1 side.
The striker arrives after last season’s number one striker Kevin Berigaud moved to Montpellier earlier in the summer. The 26 year has featured in the Spanish, Italian and Danish league before heading to Rosenborg. He managed to score 24 times in 50 games, aiding his team to a second place finish.
The internationalist, who has made three appearances for his country, becomes the latest in a long list of players who have made the switch from Denmark to the Alps and gone onto success.
