Updated: August 3, 2011

Jose Enrique is close to signing for Liverpool,with the Anfield club ready to agree terms with Newcastle United for the player.

Kenny Dalglish’s side are offering £8million to the Geordies and expect the transfer to go through within the next 48 hours. The Spanish left-back is keen to leave St James’ Park and play for a top Premiership side.

Enrique was recently fined a fortnight’s wages for hitting out at Toon owner Mike Ashley on Twitter.Enrique has to agree personal terms but expects to be a Liverpool player for the start of the Premier League season.


The defender has been desperate to leave Newcastle after failing to agree a new deal. His contract runs out next summer so the club wants to cash in rather than see the Spaniard go for nothing next year.
