But while it’s not a done deal yet, Neilson says that talks are progressing nicely: “We’re still negotiating with Liverpool. We’re almost done with it. It’s just a case of getting things finalised so he’s still a Liverpool player at the moment.

“But he’s one we’re really interested in taking here. I don’t want to comment too much.  We’re still negotiating, as we are with a few other players as well so we’ll see how it goes in the next couple of days.

“We’ve waited a number of months now to get the right players in and we’ll continue to do that with the guys we’re trying to recruit. If we need to wait, we need to wait.”
