Liverpool FC transfer news: Fenerbahce confirm deal for Reds defender Martin Skrtel ‘almost done’

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is close to completing a switch to Fenerbahce, according to the Turkish club’s president.

The Slovakian centra-back has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield since Jurgen Klopp became boss.

Schalke defender Joel Matip’s arrival on a free transfer and youngster Joe Gomez’s return to fitness after knee ligament surgery is likely to reduce Skrtel’s chances of first-team football even more.

Klopp is happy for the 31-year-old to move on and the Reds have accepted an offer of around £5m for his services from Fenerbahce.

The Istanbul club’s president Aziz Yildirim told AMK Spor: “The (Gregory) van der Wiel and Skrtel transfers are almost done.”
