Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is reluctant to confirm a pre-contract with Standard Liege striker Milan Jovanovic.

The Serbia international, out of contract in the summer, announced on Wednesday that the two parties had reached an agreement and all he had to do was complete a medical.

Benitez, though, is a little more cautious regarding any possible transfer and insists an announcement will only be made at the appropriate time.

"There are a lot of rumours in the press but we are working and we will say something if we finalise things," said the Liverpool boss.

"At this moment we are talking with people and we are working."
