      Liverpool agree deal to sign Milner

      Author: James Carroll @James_Carroll84

      Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce they have agreed a deal to sign Manchester City’s James Milner, subject to a medical.

      The Reds have agreed personal terms with the England international, who will join the club on a free transfer on July 1 after his contract at the Etihad Stadium has expired.

      Milner will arrive at Anfield having lifted two Barclays Premier League titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup during his five-year spell with City.

      The 29-year-old is also firmly established as a regular for England and has notched 53 caps to date.

      Having also represented Leeds United, Newcastle United and Aston Villa, Milner has lined up against Liverpool 24 times in total during the course of his career.

      I like the signing as part of a good Summer of signings.

      I don't like it if it is deemed as the answer alongside Ings and Clyne only.

      At least he will be an 'elder' statesman in the dressing room. Perhaps, he will be the calming figure for us. I wonder how much influence he will have with rest of the younger players - obviously not like SG.

      I expect we'll get people taking the p!ss out of this signing (our own fans I mean) but I am over the moon with it. He will instantly become one of our best players IMHO, prepare to be very surprised if you don't rate him.

      Decent player - always fancied him as a left back as does BR.

      Can also play in goal so that's our back up GK sorted as well.

      Quite frankly, I don't want to spend millions on Benteke. So, if Milner, Ings and Clyne came then so be it. At least the money saved on Benteke can be used for someone else in January may be.

      Also, I think Ings is not too bad. He will get us more goals than Balotelli, Lambert and Borini. If he gets 10 goals in a season then it money well spent.

      Goal is his best position. He is a versatile player after all. ;)

      I think Milner is a hugely underrated player and just what we need and where we need it. BR must play him in the middle, its his best position and where he will be most effective. He is vastly experienced without being over the hill and has 4 good years ahead of him, and has always come across as level headed and with a good character. Good signing.

      Personal opinion, always thought he was sh*te and never been that impressed with him.

      Anyway all the best, good luck and all that.

      I rate him Mick and like that he has chosen us over CL and City. Think he supports us doesn't he? I know that is always said but i think he does but may be wrong.

      Freebie, and a decent freebie, that will do a job but I'm hoping we'll tie up Clyne and Ings and then give the scouts their passports back and do some big business for strikers.

      Hoping he is part of a good Summer.

      I see people are being negative already, he is just what we need, we have been found wanting when we have key players injured and he can slot in and do a good job in several positions. Honest hard working lad. Good signing.

      I think he's a good player in a workman like kind of way, he'll not not often get you standing on your feet going on many runs, doing step overs, with a nut meg thrown in for entertainment purposes, but he'll give steady consistent performances and put a proper shift in, unlike some of the players at the club.

      All in all fairly pleased at the start of our transfer business.

      Met Milner when he was at villa, good honest person & pro also has a bit of fight in him which he will give us which has been lacking recently in the team.

      Still needs a medical, but at the worst, he'll be fitter than some.

      He was never sh*te.

      He was brilliant in his last season for Villa. For City he put in nothing less than a 7/10 performance in every game so to call him sh*te is ridiculous.

      However, I do hope Milner is not our replacement for Stevie though I have a bad feeling he is.

      This side lacks a grafter, so he should add some much needed balls to this team.

      A decent acquisition.

      like WAHS, I think we needed to add more quality to this signing; not sit back, admire ourselves with our feet up puffing on a Havana, like a f**king Don.

      Can't understand why anybody would be disappointed or critical with this signing.

      A very good player indeed, very under rated.

      Welcome to the best club in the world James.

      Very good player and I think will add valuable experience to this squad of players.

      On his own it does look underwhelming but as WAHS said above if this is one signing among three or four smart transfers then I think it could well be a great bit of business.

      I think most will be pretty happy with the signing, good player with a bit quality, experienced, top attitude and very hard working. What's not to like? If he is our biggest signing of the whole summer I would be worried but hopefully he is one of 3-4 top players we are looking to bring in this summer.

      although it does seem a bit strange that he is possibly earning 2 and half times more than young Coutinho. Maybe they need to have a word with the little magician's agent and give the lad a contract more in keeping with his quality and the sort of money other clubs will happily offer when they come sniffing.

      At least we didn't buy another young player who might get better in future.

      We know what we are going to get from Milner and I welcome him. I hope we get few more experienced signings - although not from Southampton or Aston Fuuuuuking Villa.
