Boss confirms Liverpool transfer close, player is due to have a medical

The clubs have agreed a deal worth £27m plus £5m in add-ons as Liverpool have recouped what they paid Aston Villa for the Belgian international a year ago.

Benteke struggled to win a regular place once Jurgen Klopp took over as manager at Anfield and finished the season with nine league goals from 29 appearances.

The 25-year-old is having his medical with Palace and the transfer is now just waiting to be confirmed.

Ahead of their game with Tottenham tomorrow, Pardew said: “It’s still subject to medical and personal terms but in terms of the agreement with Liverpool, finally we seem to have got him.
