Liverpool on verge of completing deal for Man City star

Liverpool are set to complete the signing of Manchester City star James Milner after he rejected a contract extension from the Citizens, according to reports from the Express.

The 29-year-old was offered a deal worth £165,000-a-week, an increased pay rise to his current weekly wages of £120,000-a-week.

However, with City unable to promise Milner a regular first team role, the England international has refused the contract proposal and is now set for a free transfer elsewhere.

The versatile midfielder is likely to select a switch to Anfield as he is tipped to be given a more prominent role under manager Brendan Rodgers.

He will become a free agent in the summer, and should he accept a move to join the Reds, his acquisition can be confirmed when the window opens on July 1st.

Arsenal have also entered the race for his services, but the high level of competition at the Emirates is likely to persuade the City star against a move.
