Kenny Dalglish says Stewart Downing’s move from Aston Villa to Liverpool is ‘a work in progress’.

The Reds agreed a fee with the Midlands club on Wednesday after the England international handed in a transfer request at Villa Park.

The Anfield club have now been granted permission to discuss terms with Downing, who could become Liverpool’s third summer signing following the arrivals of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam.

Dalglish told reporters: ‘We have been given permission to speak to the player.

‘We will now try to agree personal terms with him, but it will all depend on the medical. It is a work in progress and we will see what happens and keep you informed.’

The Liverpool boss also reflected on his side’s 4-3 pre-season win over Guangdong, adding: ‘It was a good training exercise for us.

‘Everyone who came with us got a game. That’s important as this is just a continuation of pre-season training. It’s very important players get time on the pitch.

‘In pre-season players will make mistakes and we did make a few but we will accept that and move on. The lads all worked very hard.’
