Danish giants Brondby have confirmed that they are in talks with Liverpool over signing Daniel Agger.

The 29-year-old centre-back has been informed he is free to leave Liverpool, following boss Brendan Rodgers signing Dejan Lovren from Southampton earlier this summer.

And Agger is thought to only be prepared to leave Liverpool to return to his former club Brondby, who he played for before moving to Merseyside in 2006.

Brondby have for their part now confirmed the existence of talks with Liverpool as they aim to re-sign Agger before the transfer window slams shut.


A statement from the Danish side confirmed discussions, but warned signing the 29-year-old would have an effect on club profits: "There has been speculation in the Danish and the international media that Brondby are in talks with Liverpool FC about a transfer of Daniel Agger.


"If there is success in signing Daniel Agger during the next few days, the financial effect will limit the profits.

"Brondby have no further comment on speculation about Daniel Agger."

Agger returned to his former club earlier this summer to play a friendly against Brondby with Liverpool.

The game had originally been agreed to as part of the defender's transfer to Liverpool in 2006, but took eight years to arrange.

Brondby had been linked with moving to sign Agger at the start of this month, but the club quickly dismissed talk he could return as "utopian".

"It does not make economic sense. How in the world could we make it work?", the club's major shareholder said.

"The man has a contract with Liverpool for another two years and reportedly earns 50m kroner (£5.3m)."
