Xabi Alonso : Rafa urged Xabi to stay, the midfielder did feature for about 6 minutes in yesterday’s game against Espanyol. Word from the Liverpool Echo is that the Reds officials met with the Real executive at the team hotel in Barcelona before last night’s game. Real seem to have met Liverpool’s asking price and are convinced that a deal is not far off.
Alberto Aquilani : Reports from Italy suggest that the deal is almost complete and once the Xabi saga is resolved then the Romanista becomes a Red.
Martin Kelly : The young defender was being linked to a move to Huddersfield Town but looks like the deal is off as Rafa is keen on keeping the England U19.
Andrea Dossena : Looks like the Italian will have to forget his dreams of Neapolitan Pizza and Aliota at Zi Teresa as the Napoli deal seems to be off, he will stay at Liverpool for another year.
Adam Hamill : Barnsley are claiming to be close to signing him on a permanent deal.
