Liverpool receive huge boost from Schalke in Howedes pursuit

Schalke won't stand in his way should Liverpool move for Benedict Howedes this week.

The experienced defender has been linked with a move to the Reds.

German sources say Liverpool are planning a £18million bid for the 29-year-old. The Germany international has spent his entire professional career with Schalke and he recently revealed that he is now looking for a move abroad.

And this morning, BILD reports Schalke are prepared to grant Howedes a free transfer should he agree terms with Liverpool.

"I've said I won't move within [Germany] and can picture a move abroad," Howedes told Funke Sport. "As of today, that point in time hasn't come.

"I received offers from other clubs after the surprising demotion from captain… that my agent checked and answered."
