Liverpool are expected to confirm a deal for Valencia fullback Aly Cissokho.

The Mirror says Cissokho is set to become Liverpool's fifth summer signing when he completes a loan move today.

Cissokho had a medical yesterday on Merseyside and is joining from Valencia for the season.

Brendan Rodgers wants him to provide competition for Jose Enrique at left-back and has the option of making the French defender's move permanent next summer for £4million.
