JOE ALLEN SPOTTED IN ANFIELD CROWD TONIGHT

Friends Of Liverpool

Joe Allen was at Anfield as a spectator for the Liverpool v Gomel Europa League qualifier second leg.

This must surely mean that the Swansea man’s transfer is nearing a completion.

Liverpool have met the £15 million buy-out clause in his contract with the Welsh outfit and it is now only a matter of Liverpool and Joe Allen agreeing personal terms to seal the deal.

Liverpool won the match 3-0 playing some very attractive attacking football with goals by Borini, his first for Liverpool, on 21 minutes.

Steven Gerrard scored from a Suarez cross on 41 minutes and Glen Johnson scored a cracking volley in the 71st minute.

Liverpool go through to the play-off next round as a seeded team, draw to take place on Friday afternoon.
