Liverpool have agreed personal terms with Valencia left-back Aly Cissokho, according to the player himself, speaking in the French press.
Earlier this week, Jose Enrique welcomed the club’s search for another player in his position that would provide him with stiffer competition.
Cissokho told Le10Sport, “Liverpool came to me and it’s true that I have agreed to join them.”
Cissokho was clear to point out that the clubs are yet to agree the full terms on the deal, whether it be a season-long loan or permanent transfer.
He continued, “Now it is down to the clubs to decide a transfer deal. Liverpool want a loan, while Valencia prefer a complete transfer.”
However, Cissokho also admitted that if the clubs don’t come to an agreement over his switch, he is happy to play on at the Spanish side.
He added, “If nothing happens this week, it certainly means that I will not move to Liverpool. But this isn’t a problem, I am happy to stay as a Valencia player.”
25-year-old Cissokho has fallen down the pecking order at Mestalla, making just 11 appearances for the La Liga outfit since moving there from Lyon last year.
The Frenchman has so far made just one appearance for his country – an international friendly against Norway back in 2010.
