Adam Bogdan will undergo a Wigan medical on Tuesday as he finalises a move to Championship newcomers Wigan, according to a report.
The Liverpool Echo claim goalkeeper Bogdan has agreed the terms of a season-long loan to the second-tier club.
The 28-year-old was left out of Liverpool’s squad for Sunday’s friendly at Wigan, after which Jurgen Klopp spoke to Latics manager Gary Caldwell about potential deals between the clubs.
Bogdan’s departure comes as Liverpool finalise the signing of defender Ragnar Klavan from Bundesliga club Augsburg.
Sky Sports claim on their website that Klavan’s medical is under way and that the deal is likely to be completed by Wednesday.
The experienced Estonia international has been brought in as cover at centre-back as Mamadou Sakho and Joe Gomez both have injuries and Tiago Ilori, who could have been a fall-back option, is heading to the Olympics with Portugal.
Bogdan is heading for the Anfield exit door after being pushed down the pecking order even further by the arrival of Mainz shot-stopper Loris Karius.
The Hungary international has made just six appearances for Liverpool since his free transfer in June 2015 from Bolton.
He was axed from Liverpool’s Europa League squad in January in favour of rookie Danny Ward, who was recalled from a loan spell at Aberdeen.
Ward is now set to join Huddersfield on loan next season even though he has been handed a new five-year deal at Anfield.
But Klopp will allow Bogdan to leave because he already has a third keeper lined up in former Arsenal man Alex Manninger, 39, who is undergoing a trial with Liverpool.
Bogdan, who began his career at Hungarian side Vasas SC, has also been linked with a move to Championship new-boys Wigan which would see him team up with Jussi Jasskelainen with whom he worked with at Bolton.
Despite a major reshuffle in the goalkeeping department, former Borussia Dortmund manager Klopp has also been busy recruiting outfield players with Sadio Mane, Joel Matip and Marko Grujic all joining Liverpool this window.
