Espanyol accept Riera bid

Liverpool are poised to complete the signing of Albert Riera from Espanyol after the Spanish wide midfielder flew to England for a medical.

Terms of the deal have been agreed between the clubs and 26-year-old Riera must only prove his fitness to seal his move to Anfield.

The fee involved is thought to be around £8million, with Riera set to return to the Premier League having previously had a loan spell with Manchester City in the 2005/06 season.

Espanyol confirmed that the winger, along with defender Pablo Zabaleta, will leave the Spanish side in a statement on their official website:

The statement read: 'Pablo Zabaleta and Albert Riera have not taken part of this morning's training session with Espanyol, in order to avoid any risk before completing their transfers to Manchester City and Liverpool, respectively,'.

'Whereas the four-year deal between Zabaleta and City is complete, with the Sky Blues having assured Espanyol they are to pay the player's contract cancellation sum ( €8 million), Riera's transfer is to be resolved in the next few hours.

'Both players are travelling this morning to Britain in order to undergo the perceptive medical tests with their new clubs.'
