AEK Athens have revealed they have agreed to let Sotiris Kyrgiakos join Liverpool.
As exclusively revealed by skysports.com on Tuesday, Liverpool have lined up a move for the former Rangers man to bolster their defensive options.
Kyrgiakos later claimed on his own personal website that he was set to join Liverpool after receiving an offer from the Merseyside outfit.
AEK have now announced that they will not stand in the way of the Greek international to make the switch to Anfield after he informed them of his desire to join the Reds.
A club statement read: "It was not in our intentions to sell any player at this moment, but the desire of Kyrgiakos to accept the offer of Liverpool was really great.
"Kyrgiakos accepted Liverpool's offer and although we did everything to keep him in the team we respect his choice.
"We fully understand that it is a great challenge and honour for any Greek player to play for a historical club as Liverpool and AEK could never be an obstacle in the evolution of a player such as Sotiris Kyrgiakos."
