Paletta passes Reds medical

Gabriel Paletta has completed a medical after flying into the country last night. Paletta had agreed personal terms on a four-year deal already.

Paletta has flown straight back home to Argentina, where he’ll be celebrating his 20th birthday tomorrow before appearing for Banfield in the Argentine league at the weekend. He’ll not be able to officially join up with Liverpool until the summer and the re-opening of the transfer window.
