Brad Jones is due to complete his move to Liverpool on Monday, can confirm.

The Reds have been locked in talks with Middlesbrough for a couple of weeks over the Australia international, who Roy Hodgsonwants as his new No.2.

Jones, who is also classed as a home-grown player under new Premier League rules, is now on his way to Liverpool’s training HQ at Melwood to complete his medical.

It is understood personal terms have already been agreed and he will pen a three-year contract upon completion of his medical. revealed last week the two clubs had agreed a fee, but an issue remained over how the sum – believed to be around £2.5million – would be paid. (Sky Sports)

After Pepe Reina’s uncharacteristic fumble yesterday is seems that Roy Hodgson is set to complete the signing of Aussie Brad Jones. Clearly the Boro man will only be back up but the signing of a player who in nine years at the Riverside has only amassed 57 league appearances is a little odd.

We are talking about a player who hasn’t managed to get a regular spot at a Championship club so is the 28 year old really up for the task of being a reserve goalie at a club looking to get back into the top four? Either way it’s a relatively cheap signing and clearly Hodgson doesn’t have a great deal of money to play with perhaps finances dictated the quality of the signing rather than any sense of the player being a hidden gem.
