Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign Valencia left-back Aly Cissokho on a season long-loan.
The France international, who was linked with a move to join Sunderland, has agreed to join Liverpool on an initial loan with a view to a permanent move.
Manager Brendan Rodgers has been looking for reinforcements at left-back as Jose Enrique is his only senior player in that position and has identified the
Frenchman as a viable option.
Cissokho is expected to travel to Merseyside next week to undergo a medical and agree personal terms at Anfield.
