Skrtl edges closer to Anfield exit as Liverpool accept £5.5million bid

Liverpool have accepted a £5.5million bid from Fenerbahce for long serving Slovakia defender Martin Skrtl.

The 31-year looks set to end his eight year spell at Anfield after Jurgen Klopp accepted a bid for the centre-back, who is currently on international duty with Slovakia at Euro 2016.

Skrtl is deemed surplus to requirements at Liverpool, who have plenty of defensive options available despite allowing Kolo Toure to leave on a free transfer. Mamadou Sakho is confident of overturning a drugs ban, whilst Dejan Lovren has turned around his once sketchy form.

Liverpool have also confirmed the signing of Cameroon international Joel Matip, who will arrive at Anfield on a free transfer at the expiry of his contract at Schalke.

The £5.5million bid by Fenerbahce for Skrtl has been accepted by Liverpool, and the deal is expected to be completed as soon as Slovakia’s involvement in Euro 2016 is over.
