Rafa Cuts down some deadwood!
Sebastián Leto, the Liverpool winger, is close to joining Panathinaikos, Andrea Dossena, the left back, could sign for Juventus and Hertha Berlin want to keep Andriy Voronin, who impressed on loan for the German club last season.

Rafa Benitez made an interesting point in a recent interview when he revealed that he could bring in another player to boost the club’s squad’s and intimated that he could bring in even more if he could offload some of the deadwood and with that in mind it appears that things are moving faster with these three Liverpool squad players.
Apparently Hertha Berlin have performed something of a U-turn with regards to Andriy Voronin, who impressed greatly whilst on loan to the Bundesliga side last term. Originally the club were unwilling to consider permanently signing the Ukrainian but now they are said to be considering a move for the striker.
Leto hasn’t played a league game for the Anfield side since joining them two years ago and this has been mainly down to work permit problems but clearly if Benitez was interested in keeping the Argentine left sided player then he would probably try and keep him but that isn’t the case and his deal to join Panahinkaikos is close to being completed. Andrea Dossena’s move to Juventus is said to also be moving towards completion.
This would be excellent news for the club who can then set about re-investing the money in squad building.
Leto/Dossena/Voronin to leave Liverpool: I can confidently suggest that none of these three will play again for the Reds
