Liverpool tonight confirmed the news on their own official web-site that they have agreed a four-year contract with Peter Crouch. The Southampton striker will cost Liverpool £7million, assuming he passes his medical tomorrow.
The Reds web-site does not confirm the fee that has been widely reported elsewhere. The official statement is: "Liverpool have confirmed they have agreed a deal to sign Peter Crouch from Southampton on a four year contract.
A transfer fee has been agreed between the two clubs and the Reds have also finalised personal terms with the striker.
Crouch will undergo a medical tomorrow before officially signing his new Liverpool contract.
He will then join up with his new Liverpool team-mates at their training camp in Switzerland ahead of Saturday’s friendly against Olympiacos in Liechtenstein.
He becomes Rafa Benitez’s sixth signing of the summer, following in the footsteps of Bolo Zenden, Pepe Reina, Momo Sissoko, Antonio Barragan and Mark Gonzales."
