It appears that Adam Bogdan’s move to Liverpool is not quite as close as we might have thought, although the Reds still remain firm favourites to seal a deal for the talented Hungarian goalkeeper.

We reported earlier this week that the Bolton man would be signing for us at the start of July – as was reported by the Daily Mail – but the flame-haired stopper has been quoted in the Daily Mirror as saying things aren’t quite so sorted.
“I am confident that I will soon decide my fate,” he said. “My goal is to play at a higher level, but it also depends on where you get a chance. We’ll see, everything is decided in the next week or two.”
That essentially means that he’ll be waiting until the end of his contract – which ends this month – to make his final decision. It’s hard to see him turning down a move to Liverpool if an offer is indeed on the table, but at 27 it’s possible that he might prefer to play regularly, rather than sit on the bench at Anfield.
He’ll essentially be a like-for-like replacement for Brad Jones, who leaves us at the end of the season after five years on Merseyside. Bogdan comes to us with slightly more first-team experience than his Australian counterpart, having played more than 100 times for Wanderers, but it’s still hard to see him displacing Simon Mignolet as number one.
