Liverpool agree fee for Downing

14th July 2011 - Alma Shera

Liverpool have agreed a fee with Aston Villa that may lead to Stewart Downing playing football games for the Merseyside club.

Yesterday, it was revealed on Liverpool's official website that the club had been given consent to commence negotiations with the England international after an agreement was concluded with Villa.

Dalglish told the site: "We have been given permission to speak to the player. We will now try to agree personal terms with him, but it will all depend on the medical. It is a work in progress and we will see what happens and keep you informed."

Aston Villa declined a £15 million bid from Liverpool last week, though it now appears that a satisfactory offer has been tabled.

Downing may become the third midfielder to be brought into the club this summer, after Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam arrived from Sunderland and Blackpool respectively.
