Liverpool prepare to part with Martin Skrtel, plus more news from the transfer window from SSN HQ

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is very close to signing for Turkish side Fenerbahce for a fee of £5m, according to Sky sources.

The Slovakia captain, who enjoyed an impressive Euro 2016 campaign in France, has fallen out of favour at Anfield under Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The 31-year-old centre-back has made 320 appearances for the Reds in eight seasons since joining them from Zenit St Petersburg in January 2008 but last term he appeared just 27 times in 63 games.

Fenerbahce opened talks with Liverpool and Skrtel earlier this week and it now appears they are close to confirming the transfer.

Skrtel has been on holiday in the south of France following Slovakia's exit from Euro 2016 and he posted a picture on his Instagram account this week, alongside the caption: "Last few days in the sun with the wife before I ???"
