The France international has been strongly linked with a switch to England for some time, and he is now ready to take on a Premier League challenge.

Liverpool have led the hunt for his services this summer and would appear to be closing on a top target - with the Reds favouring a loan move with the option for a permanent deal.

The 25-year-old believes that Valencia are keen to move him on, but concedes that an agreement must be reached with his prospective new employers before a transfer can be completed.

"Liverpool have made me an offer and it is true that I have reached an agreement with them," Cissokho said on Le 10 Sport.

"It is now up to the clubs to agree terms. I expect to know more later this week.

"If nothing happens this week, it probably means that I will not be going to Liverpool.

"The conditions of the transfer are the problem. Liverpool prefer a loan deal with an option to buy, while Valencia want to sell straight away.

"If the transfer doesn't take place, it's not a problem either. I am feeling well at Valencia."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
