Liverpool have agreed to sell Mamadou Sahko to Crystal Palace but on a permanent deal, reports Express sport.
The versatile defender fell out of favour with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp on disciplinary grounds. He turned up very late for Liverpool’s pre-season tour last term and was fired from the team by the German tactician.
He spent the whole of last season on loan with the Eagles where he shone and kept them in the Premier League. Nonetheless, his barnstorming season was scuppered by a knee injury he picked up that ruled him out of the season.
Crystal Palace are in the chase of the player and they want him on another loan spell but Liverpool have asked them to meet his £30million(€35) valuation fee, reports the Daily Mirror.
Knowing well that he has no place in the defense of the Reds, the reports claim that Sahko wants to link up with French boss Frank De Boer, who was appointed to the reigns of the Selhurst Park outfit. Nonetheless, the asking price of Liverpool for the player is a tad too much for De Boer.
Sahko is currently at Liverpool Melwood training ground where he’s stepped up his rehabilitation ahead of the coming the season.
