Stoke closing in on Allen - reports


Liverpool are reported to have accepted a £13million bid for Joe Allen from Stoke.

Allen has a year to run on his contract at Anfield, but the midfielder has attracted interest from a number of clubs following an impressive run of form at the end of season which he carried into the Wales' Euro 2016 campaign.

Swansea had been linked with a move for the player but Stoke are understood to have had a bid accepted, with Allen now set to make a decision on his future.

However, when asked about Allen's future, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp refused to confirm Stoke's bid.

"There is nothing about this and all the transfer rumours," Klopp said in the wake of Liverpool's pre-season win over Huddersfield. "We cannot comment because we couldn't do anything else all day if we did, so we shouldn't start with this.

"I feel good (about Allen). I like the guy and I really think he is a wonderful football player: I knew this before the European Championships, I saw it during the Euros and I know it now.

"I have said all I can say about this. It is all about respecting contracts, negotiating or not - whatever - and make a transfer or not.

"But is it nothing to discuss in public but I've not seen him since the middle of May in Basle (at the Europa League final, sadly."
