Liverpool are on the verge of completing the signing of Feyenoord's Holland international striker Dirk Kuyt.

Boss Rafa Benitez will finally get his man in the next 48 hours, according to the Daily Mail, after bombarding the Dutch club with a number of offers, including part-exchange deals involving Jerzy Dudek and Jan Kromkamp.

Kuyt was due back for pre-season training at Feyenoord on Monday but the club have given him seven days off to sort out his future.

Benitez had been worried that the £13.75 million asking price would scupper the deal but Liverpool are now investigating claims that the player has a £10.3 million release clause in his contract.

Kuyt scored 22 goals in 33 league games last season but now wants to play in England.

Drogballs: Not impressed with his performance during the World Cup. But if Rafa thinks he's good enough, then it's alright with me. Usually players who suck at the WC are the ones that perform in the leagues. Anyway it's only just a rumour so let's just sit back and wait for the latest.
