Liverpool reported to have agreed deal in principle for Joel Matip

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Liverpool have agreed in principle to sign Schalke defender Joel Matip.

The centre half is set to join the Reds on a free transfer after failing to agree a deal to extend his current contract with the Bundesliga side.

It does not state when the Cameroonian international will join the Reds, but it will probably be in the summer, though it could be this winter if his contract expires before the end of January.

This particular piece of transfer speculation does look to have a ring of truth to it, hardly makes sense to make up a rumour when actual facts are involved, like contracts expiring. © 2017 Frontier Theme
