Football:Liverpool agree fee for Kyrgiakos


Liverpool have agreed a deal with AEK Athens to sign Greek international Sotirios Kyrgiakos for a reported £2m.
The 30-year-old former Rangers defender will undergo a medical on Merseyside this week with a view to signing before Monday's home game with Aston Villa.
"He is a player with experience who can hopefully help us in defence," Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez told his club website.
"He has experience in British football with Rangers."
Benitez, whose side beat Stoke 4-0 on Wednesday night, added: "He's a good player in the air, strong and aggressive. We were looking for a player with experience.
"He will have the medical this week, it has to be before the weekend."
The Greek player's arrival would be a timely one because Reds defenders Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel are currently out injured. Agger has a back problem and Skrtel is sidelined because of a jaw injury.
