Liverpool are closing in on a deal for Swansea City midfielder Joe Allen.

The Welsh club are holding out for £15million, which would trigger a release clause in Allen's contract, but Liverpool have offered £12.5m and Jonjo Shelvey on loan.

According to the Liverpool Daily Post, Swansea are set to reject that offer but Allen is still expected to complete his transfer.
