Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard on Wednesday accepted undisclosed libel damages over a claim he had been in secret talks over a possible move to Real Madrid.

The England midfielder brought proceedings in London´s High Court against Sport Magazine, and his solicitor, Gerard Tyrrell, told Mr Justice Eady that the article - in February - was accompanied by a fax from the Park Lane Marriott Hotel which it claimed was "confirmation of a hotel reservation in London for the Liverpool captain".

The story stated that "Sport Magazine might not be the sharpest tool in the box, but even we can join the dots on this one".
