Jovanovic: No Liverpool U-turn

Milan Jovanovic insists he is not about to do a U-turn and will sign for Liverpool rather than Inter Milan.

The Serbia international striker signed a pre-contract agreement with the Reds in February but recent rumours suggested he had had a change of heart and would now be following Rafa Benitez to Italy.

However, the 29-year-old, who spent the last four seasons with Standard Liege, told Nieuwsblad:"I am going to Liverpool. I have signed there for three years. I repeat, no pre-agreement – a real contract.

"The departure of Benitez changes nothing. I have maintained contact with the executive board of Liverpool and everything is good.

"I am working to arrange my visa for England. Next week I go there to collect my work permit.

"Everything is in order since in the last two years I have played 75 per cent of the matches for my national side. Next I am looking for a house.

"On the 14th or 15th July I will join the squad for a training camp in Switzerland. But, as from Thursday, I want to start my individual training programme so I can show them immediately that I am worth a place in the side."
