Liverpool have confirmed that they have agreed a deal with Real Madrid for Alvaro Arbeloa.

Arbeloa had already revealed he was in the Spanish capital holding talks with Real.

Now Liverpool have confirmed that they have agreed to sell the Spanish international to the Liga giants.

A Liverpool spokesman said: "We have agreed a fee with Real Madrid for the transfer of the player, subject to him completing a medical."

It is believed that Arbeloa will pen a five-year contract once he has passed his medical, after the clubs agreed a deal worth around £3.5million.

The move will see Arbeloa return to the club he began his career with, after which he joined Deportivo La Coruna and then Liverpool.
