Antonio Barragan's move to Deportivo La Coruna is not in danger of collapsing.
Antonio Barragan's agent has dampened suggestions the Liverpool defender's move to Deportivo La Coruna is in danger of collapsing.
The Spanish teenager is tipped to return to his homeland to join Depor in a £1.7 million transfer.
He has been lined up to sign a five-year contract and all three parties verbally agreed the switch before last weekend.
But the delay in rubber-stamping the move has led to rumours that the deal could be scrapped.
Barragan's representative Fermin Gutierrez has played down the reports, but concedes there are still issues to be overcome before the transfer is pushed through.
"There are still important details to solve," admitted Gutierrez.
"They have to do with the negotiation between us and Depor, and both clubs.
"Even so, they are not questions that can bring the operation down."
