Dirk Kuyt came through his medical with flying colours yesterday – although the results of some tests are still being waited on. According the the official LFC website, the personal terms seem to have been agreed and it’s only those test results that are holding things up: “Liverpool are hoping to complete the signing of Dirk Kuyt from Feyenoord this morning. The Dutch striker underwent a medical yesterday and will officially sign his new Anfield contract as soon as the test results have been approved.”
There’s also a statement from Rick Parry on the site, who says: “We hope the results will prove to be satisfactory. All being well it will go through this morning.”
The deal needs to be finalised by noon if Kuyt is to be considered for tomorrow’s season opener against Sheffield United.
