Out-of-favour Liverpool striker Milan Jovanovic has agreed to move to Anderlecht after a meeting with club officials yesterday.
The Serbian striker, who has been told he can leave Anfield on a free transfer, managed to sketch out a deal with the Belgian giants for a two-year contract with the possibility of a third year.
However, despite Jovanovic himself agreeing to head to Anderlecht, the Belgian side still have much work to do to complete the move.
Indeed, Liverpool will be needed to find a financial settlement with the player which can offset the reduced wages on offer in Belgium.
And so today Anderlecht’s president Herman Van Holsbeeck is flying into Liverpool for talks with the English Premier League giants.
"Herman Van Holsbeeck has a lot of work to do to break the deadlock", said Jovanovic’s agent Dejan Vejkovic after meeting Anderlecht officials.
"He has contact with Liverpool to find a solution.
"We hope to finalise the deal on the spot. I’m optimistic."
