Liverpool legend Phil Thompson believes Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique has already agreed a move to Anfield.
Enrique, 25, has been one of Newcastle's most impressive performers over the last two seasons and he is said to be rated at around £15 million.
Thompson, who won three European Cups as a Reds player and has acted as the club's assistant manager, told TV2: "From what I've heard, yes, the deal has been done and he will come to Liverpool. It'll be interesting because he's done very well.
"He had a difficult first season coming into the Premiership a couple of years ago but he really understands the game now.
"He's one of those full-backs who is good going forward but he's also a good defender and I think that is the main thing."
Enrique signed a five-year deal when he joined Newcastle from Villarreal in 2007.
