Both players were suffering from knee injuries sustained in February, but the news will come as a welcome boost to Reds boss Kenny Dalglish, who has seen captian Steven Gerrard, among others, head to the treatment room.

According to the Scot, Danish defender Agger is likely to make a return quicker than talented youngster Shelvey, who was starting to make more of an impact under Dalglish than his predecessor Roy Hodgson.

Despite their returns, both are almost certain not to feature in the squad for the Europa League round of 16 second leg against the Portuguese outfit, where the Meseyside giants trail 1-0.

Improving

Dalglish told the club's official website: "Daniel Agger is improving. He is back training. Jonjo is back training as well.

"Daniel is closer than Jonjo."

Full-backs Martin Kelly and Fabio Aurelio were injured in recent weeks and Dalglish conceded that they still had some distance to go before resuming full training.

"Fabio and Martin are doing a little bit but haven't joined in with too much exercise yet," he added.

"They are all progressing."
