Doni to Liverpool 'in 36 hours'

Roma goalkeeper Alexander Doni is due to sign for Liverpool “in the next 36 hours,” according to his agent.

The 31-year-old Brazilian had rejected an earlier proposal from the Anfield side, insisting the personal terms and 60 per cent wage decrease was “unacceptable.”

However, over the past few days it had become clear that negotiations were back on and he'll complete the transfer by the end of the week.

“In the next 36 hours we will know something definite,” Ovidio Colucci told Sky Sports.

“Liverpool are interested in Doni and there is the agreement between the two clubs and with the player.

“Doni is in Italy right now. We just have to ratify certain details with Roma.

“If the deal is completed, Doni will join Liverpool on a free transfer and will sign a two-year contract.

“Doni is very happy with the chance to go to Liverpool and play in the Premier League.”

This ends a six-year spell at the Olimpico for Doni, who joined from Juventude in 2005.

In recent years he has been first, second and even third choice at the club, depending on the situation.
