Liverpool attacker Milan Jovanovic is joining Anderlecht.

Belgian giants Anderlecht announced the news on their website, saying that the deal will be completed once Jovanovic passes a medical on Thursday.

Jovanovic, now 30, joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Standard Liege last summer, having impressed former Reds boss Rafael Benitez, but he was unable to establish himself in the Premier League.

Anderlecht stated on Tuesday: "RSC Anderlecht and Liverpool FC reached today, Tuesday, August 2, 2011, an agreement on the transfer of Liverpool striker Milan Jovanovic."

Anderlecht general manager Herman Van Holsbeeck on Tuesday described negotiations with Liverpool as "long, but fruitful" and spoke of Jovanovic's "undeniable talent" and "requisite experience" being key qualities.

The Reds this evening announced a deal was in place with the Belgian side.

A club statement read on Tuesday: "Liverpool confirmed this evening they have reached agreement with Anderlecht for the transfer of Milan Jovanovic."
