Liverpool finally seal first January deal


English Premier League leaders Liverpool have successfully secured their first deal after accepting a bid of about £19 million from Bournemouth for striker Dominic Solanke.

This is no doubt a dream come true for Dominic Solanke as he has shown a lot of desperate acts to have a move away from the Merseyside club in order to be able to secure more playing time.

Dominic Solanke has had successful spells as a youth player for both his England country and the Reds and he has thought it wise to take the next step by playing senior and regular football.

This he will not have at the Anfield which is the reason why he has been linked to a number of clubs including Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace of recent made a statement through their manager claiming that they will have no need of the player which is the reason why Bournemouth was able to have a free run in the deal for Dominic Solanke.

The news was broken by James Pearce off the Liverpool Echo on his twitter handle when he made it clear that an agreement has been reached between the two clubs for Dominic Solanke.

Dominic Solanke has only scored one goal since joining Liverpool from Chelsea for a fee of £6 million.
