Some sad news coming in for the Kop faithful who are getting pretty boozy here in the Transfer Tavern today.
It was reported that long time club servant, Lucas Leiva, had been deemed surplus to requirements by the Anfield club.
Now it looks like the Brazilian holding midfielder, who has fallen out of favour behind James Milner and Jordan Henderson, is on his way to Turkey – to play for Besiktas on a season long loan, this according to the Mirror.
Whilst it isn’t quite farewell for good just yet for the player, there are still a fair few disappointed Liverpool lads in this pub who really want Lucas to remain at the club.
With talks now ongoing, Besiktas are keen to get the deal done in the next 48 hours and land their man as soon as possible. Whilst he may not be first-choice our landlord had this to say: ” I would be a bit worried if i was a Liverpool fan, this lad is quality still and he has needed experience in that young side”.
