Starlet confirms: "I'm flying to Liverpool on Monday with my agent..."

Swedish Under-21 goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt claims that he is close to making a deadline-day transfer to Anfield.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish confirmed earlier today that no new players would be signed for the first team, but the 22 year old stopper told Fotbolldirekt.se:

"It’s really exciting. I’ll be flying to Liverpool on Monday with my agent. We'll see what plans they have for me.

"It's obvious that it feels terrific, but I try to keep the feet firmly planted on the ground."

Nordfeldt has made 103 appearances for IF Brommapojkarna, and he made his full international debut for Sweden a year ago.

It's unclear whether he's actually signing for the club or going for a trial at this stage, but if this turns out to be Liverpool's only transfer activity in January, it will be very disappointing indeed.

To be honest, I don't understand why any young goalkeeper would come to Liverpool. I can't think of one young keeper in the last 40 years who has actually started off in the youth set-up, progressed into the first team and become established as the club's number one.

  1. i heard that Doni is leaving to Brazil and that guy is going to replace him, but honestly why is he coming, i think he feels lucky a bit too lucky

  2. david james was 22

  3. Well lots of gossip at anfield..I know LFC is about to be one of the greatest again,KD is rebuilding,Tevez said : bellamy is the best striking partner he ever had.Im sure tevez would look for the first to show the world n both manchesters wrong..LFC will try loan him this is true i can tell ,KD asked to post wolves vs lfc cause of transfer.But i doubt we will play 25M for tevez but loaning is sure and also i think that we would rather 25M down on CAVANI!!!EVERYONES excited to come play at lfc with gerrard- suarez- bellamy -(TEVEZ OR CAVANI ) would fit for sure..

  4. Liverpool signed Danny Ward from Wrexham for £100,000. 18 year old Welsh unde 19 keeper.

  5. yes...a 3rd choice goalkeeper...Thats what we want...

  6. You can wait! We have enough keeers now1! Look whaT HAPPENED to Chrs Kirkland, Scott Carson and Nikolay Moholay.And the pecking order after Reina is Brad Jones, Doni, Peter Gulacsi AND Martin Hanson.

  7. Nordfeldt is not even one of swedens 5 best goalkeepers. Isaksson, Wiland, Dahlin, Hansson, Kalle Johansson and Viktor Noring is for sure better.
