Liverpool boss Benitez reveals three signings already clinched

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has sensationally revealed he has three signings already agreed for the summer market.

Despite the fractured relationship between club co-owners George Gillett and Tom Hicks, Benitez says the finance is available to complete the transfers.

"We have agreements with two young players and one senior player who will be a starting XI player. That deal is already done," said a bullish Benitez. "We are also making plans for our preseason tour and talking to players here about new contracts."

Benitez has been strongly linked in Germany with Schalke's Brazilian full-back Rafinha, who is known as 'Little Rafa'. The two younger players are believed to be from South America.
