Marius Zaliukas: Lithuanian free agent

Zaliukas will be at the heat of the Lithuanian defence as they take on Bosnia & Herzegovina in a huge match, as victory for the visitors would see them book their place at the World Cup finals.

Former Hearts star Zaliukas, 29, is a free agent, having turned down a move to Rangers last month and has since been in England training with Queens Park Rangers.

QPR are keen on striking a deal for the central defender, but a number of other Premier League and Championship clubs showing an interest and Zaliukas has kept his options open so far.

Zaliukas is hoping to finalise a deal after returning from World Cup duty, and his performance against Bosnia could go a long way to deciding his future.

His representative Barry Hughes confirmed to Sky Sports: "We have been told by a number of clubs that they will be taking the opportunity to watch Marius, and it is hard to think of a better match when you consider it is a crucial World Cup qualifier.

"Marius for his part is not thinking about any clubs at the moment, he is focused on Lithuania and will only think about his future when he returns to Britain later this week."

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
