Liverpool's Sissoko confident of Juventus move

Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko has revealed he is "very close" to joining Juventus.

The 22-year-old moved to Liverpool in the summer of 2005 from Valencia and is under contract with the Merseyside club until June 2011.

"I'm still a Liverpool player," Sissoko told

Radio Montecarlo. "But I expect a big announcement in the next few days.

"My agent, Juve and Liverpool are working on my departure.

"Everyone is asking me whether I have already signed: I haven't yet but my move to Juventus is very close.

"I'm expecting the good news any moment now, but I'm enthusiastic about beginning a new adventure in Italy with the Bianconeri."

Sissoko is expected to arrive on a loan deal, with Juve being given the option to buy him at the end of the season.
