Liverpool agree terms on 28-year-old transfer - report
By North-west correspondent Alex Stevens
Adam Bogdan has agreed the terms of a move from Liverpool to Championship newcomers Wigan, according to a report.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper 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 Sun claims Liverpool have given the green light for Bogdan to join Wigan 24 hours after it was reported that manager Jurgen Klopp had given Bristol City permission to speak to his reserve keeper.
It is said that Bogdan will complete a transfer to the DW Stadium to be part of the club’s second-tier campaign.
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.
