Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel is reportedly close to finalising a deal Turkish side Fenerbahce.

The Guardian has reported that the Reds have accepted a deal to send Skrtel to the Turkish club for £5.5 million.

The 31-year-old, who has made 320 appearances for Liverpool, struggled for regular game time under new manager Jurgen Klopp and was also linked with a move to Middlesbrough, Galatasaray and Besiktas.

He joined the Merseyside club from Zenit Saint Petersburg in January 2008.
