Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez says defender Daniel Agger is ‘œvery close’ to signing a new contract to stay at Anfield, amid speculation linking the Danish defender away from the club.
The 24-year-old has been constantly linked with a move to Serie A in Italy after struggling to hold down a first team place with central defence competition from Jamie Carragher, Martin Skrtel and Sami Hyypia.
But Benitez is confident Agger will commit his future to the Reds very shortly. He told press, “It is very close. We are just waiting on the small details but it is nearly done. We have to wait a little bit longer but we are very close.
“He is very happy here and I have always supported him. Hopefully it will be done.”
