Wolves Reject Bizarre £500k Bid From Liverpool For Reserve Keeper

Rodgers eyeing reunion with Dutchman.

Wolves have rejected a £500,000 bid from Liverpool for reserve ‘keeper Dorus de Vries, according to the Daily Mail.

The relegated Midlands outfit are thought to be willing to sell the 31-year-old for £1m, however.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers knows De Vries after working with the Dutchman during Swansea’s promotion winning season from the Championship.

But the Dutchman has barely featured since moving to Molineux in June 2011 and made just nine appearances last season, five coming in domestic cups.

Liverpool already boast Brad Jones and Alexander Doni as back-ups to trusted number one Pepe Reina.

Rodgers admitted on Wednesday that he hoped to sign ‘a number’ of new faces before the end of the month but Liverpool fans could be forgiven for feeling distinctly underwhelmed if De Vries is one of them.

Meanwhile, the Reds have stepped up their chase for Swansea midfielder Joe Allen by tabling a £15m bid – enough to meet the 22-year-old’s release clause.
