Agents' fees stalls Liverpool move for Chelsea's Sturridge
Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge has seen his move to Liverpool stall over agents' fees. The Daily Mail says Sturridge's £12million move to Liverpool has hit a stumbling block due to a wrangle over agents fees.
Liverpool are stamping down on the money they pay agents after recently published figures showed their outlay since 2008-09 has been a staggering £31.3million - only Chelsea (£31.8m) and Manchester City (£39.02m) have paid more in the same period.
Liverpool had hoped that Sturridge - who has been told he can leave Chelsea after being left out of their squad for the Club World Cup - would have been in a position to complete a medical on Wednesday so that his switch from Stamford Bridge would be finalised in time for him to be unveiled on January 1.
There have also been some minor issues with Liverpool and Sturridge's advisors.
