Alldeles nyss bekräftade Benitez att greken Kyrgiakos är på gång till klubben.
Benitez sa följande till Liverpoolfc.tv: ”We have nearly done the deal subject to a medical. He is a player with experience who can hopefully help us in defence.
”He has experience in British football and Rangers. After that with Frankfurt and the national team. He’s a good player in the air, strong and aggressive. We were looking for a player with experience.
”He will have the medical this week, it has to be before the weekend.”
