Middlesbrough want a staggering £3 million for Australian keeper Brad Jones – after turning down a bid for half of that figure from Liverpool.

Boro supremo Steve Gibson is holding out for the massive sum despite the surprise move from the Kop, first revealed by Football Spy.

Jones is willing to go to Anfield and cover for keeper Pepe Reina but the deal is now in jeopardy as Liverpool do not want to spend so much on a number two.

Liverpool now look set to move for Adam Federici after Middlesborough made it known that they are not willing to part with Brad Jones for anything less than their valuation of the Australian goalkeeper.

With funds limited at Anfield, until a rumoured take-over is to happen at least, it would seem more sensible to spend the funds on strengthening in other positions. Current second choice ‘keeper Diego Cavalieri has shown that he is a more-than-capable stopper and a decent understudy to Pepe Reina.

Liverpool do also still have controversial goalkeeper Charles Itandje on their books.
