Liverpool today agreed a deal with AEK Athens for centre-back Sotirios Kyrgiakos, subject to a medical. The 30-year-old Greek international will arrive at Melwood for a medical examination before the weekend.
Rafa Benitez told Liverpoolfc.tv: "We have nearly done the deal subject to a medical. He is a player with experience who can hopefully help us in defence.
"He has experience in British football and Rangers. After that with Frankfurt and the national team. He's a good player in the air, strong and aggressive. We were looking for a player with experience. "He will have the medical this week, it has to be before the weekend."
On how the signing would impact on young centre-backs such as Martin Kelly and Daniel Ayala, Benitez added: "The young players know they need experience and so to learn alongside people with this experience is better."
Sekurang-kurangnya Kyrgiakos boleh masuk untuk lawan team yang suka main bola tinggi contoh cam Spurs sebelum ni. Dan Ayala dan Kelly boleh ambil kursus insentif dari beliau.
