Enrique close to sealing Liverpool switch

Reports indicate that Jose Enrique has moved closer to his dream move to Liverpool, after Newcastle conceded that the club are destined to lose their star full-back.

Liverpool have been linked with the defender all summer and this latest development could mean that the two clubs are close to agreeing a £5m transfer.

The Spaniard is entering the last year of his current contract, and given that the player is unlikely to sign a contract extension, have decided to capitalize on his departure.

The 25 year-old was fined two weeks’ wages for comments made on social networking site, Twitter, regarding the lack of ambition of the north-east club.

Liverpool will free up space for another foreigner in their squad by completing the sale of Milan Jovanovic, who undergoes a medical with Anderlecht later this week.
