Serbian striker Milan Jovanovic has confirmed he is joining Liverpool on a bosman transfer this summer, having agreed a 3 year deal at the club.
Recent reports had suggested the departure of Rafa Benitez could mean the deal collapsing, and the 29 year old instead heading to Inter Milan, but he has told Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblad he has signed a 3 year contract at Anfield.
According to the player he will join up with his new team mates when they begin their Austrian training camp on July 14th.
Those Liverpool players who weren’t involved in the World Cup return to pre-season training on Friday, Jovanovic – who made 3 appearances, scoring once, in South Africa – will start his own training programme ahead of the Austrian training camp.
“I am going to Liverpool. I have signed there for three years. I repeat: no pre-agreement – a real contract.
“The departure of Benítez changes nothing. I have maintained contact with the executive board of Liverpool and everything is good.
“Everything is in order since in the last two years I have played 75 per cent of the matches for my national side. Next I am looking for a house.
“On the 14th or 15th July I will join the squad for a training camp in Switzerland. But, as from Thursday, I want start my individual training programme so I can show them immediately that I am worth a place in the side.”
Welcome to Liverpool, Milan.
