Liverpool Target Travelled To Airport Before Deal Collapsed, But Set To Complete Transfer For A Defender

Liverpool Target Travelled To Airport Before Deal Collapsed, But Set To Complete Transfer For A Defender

Liverpool are set to sign Preston defender Ben Davies after failing to agree a transfer for Marseille's Duje Caleta-Car, who travelled to the airport on Sunday to fly to England to complete a move.

Jurgen Klopp was working on a deal for Caleta-Car, according to widespread reports, with the transfer hinging on whether the French club could find a replacement.

He travelled to the airport to board a private jet to Manchester ahead of a deadline day switch to Liverpool.

However, he didn't get on the flight after his club put the brakes on the transfer, worried about finding a replacement before the deadline.

A deal for the Croatian international now looks unlikely.

Instead, the Premier League champions are looking domestically with the club agreeing a fee with Championship side Preston for Davies.

The Reds will pay just £500,000 up front, per Sky Sports who say Preston could receive add-ons totalling up to £1.1 million during the course of Davies' time at Anfield.

Liverpool have fended off competition from the likes of Celtic, Burnley and Sheffield United to land Davies.

Sepp van den Berg will go the other way as he'll play at the Deepdale on loan for the rest of the season.

The signing of Davies should ease Klopp's defensive issues with first-choice pairing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez out with long-term injuries.

Fabinho and Joel Matip have also struggled with injuries as the German boss played Jordan Henderson and Nat Phillips in defence in their 3-1 win over West Ham on Sunday.
