Agger close to new Liverpool deal
Friday 01 May 2009
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is close to signing a new contract with the Premier League club, manager Rafa Benitez said today.
The 24-year-old Denmark international, who has one season left on his existing deal, had been linked with a move from Anfield.
"It is very close," Benitez said. "We are just waiting on the small details but it is nearly done. We have to wait a little bit longer but we are very close.
"He is very happy here and I have always supported him. Hopefully it will be done."
Liverpool recently completed new deals with Steven Gerrard and Dirk Kuyt, while verbal agreements have been made with youngsters Nathan Ecclestone, Peter Gulacsi, Krisztian Nemeth and Nabil El Zhar.
