Liverpool have made a move for Standard Liege midfielder Steven Defour.

Belgian sources say Defour is in negotiations with Roy Hodgson over a move with the new Reds manager eager to seal the Belgium international as his first signing at Anfield.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson sent the talented midfield playmaker a letter after Defour picked up a serious injury that kept him from playing from September until January.
