Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Liverpool offer accepted, amid reports

Greek defender Sotiris Kyrgiakos claims he is set to join Liverpool from AEK Athens.

The 30-year-old international centre-back told his personal website that he had agreed a deal to move to Anfield.

Reds boss Rafael Benitez is believed to be keen to bolster his central defensive options following the summer departure of Sami Hyypia.

Kyrgiakos has been capped 49 times by Greece and has previously played in Scotland for Rangers.

"I would like to inform the fans of AEK that on Monday night I received an offer from Liverpool, an offer which I have accepted," he said.

"I understand this has come at the worst possible time ahead of the crucial games for qualification to the Europa League, but the fact that I will play for Liverpool is like a qualification in itself for me.

"I have taken my final decision which was accepted by the president and the coach."

Neither Liverpool or AEK Athens have officially confirmed the transfer.
