Three-way battle to sign Liverpool defender

Norwich have joined Swansea and Hull in the race for Liverpool’s Spanish defender Daniel Ayala. Hull and Swansea have both reportedly bid £850,000 for the 20-year-old defender.

But only news from the Liverpool camp is that the Reds agreed fee with Hull City.

If the rumours are to be true, Swansea and Norwich are the better options for Ayala to consider as both teams has been newly promoted from the Championship.

Swans tempting Liverpool defender from the Tigers

With the lure of Premier League football, Swansea City are in talks with Liverpool over the possible transfer of defender Daniel Ayala.

Liverpool accepted Hull's bid for Ayala on Saturday, paving the way for the 20-year-old to discuss personal terms with the Championship club.

Daniel Ayala But Swansea are planning their own bid for the Spaniard, who has made four appearances for Liverpool since making his debut at White Hart Lane in 2009.

Ayala impressed during a 12-game loan spell at Hull last season.

He ended the season on loan at Derby County, and played in the 2-1 home win over Swansea in March.

Liverpool signed Ayala from Seville in 2007 but the Spain Under-21 international has failed to establish himself in the first team at Anfield.

Swansea are keen to increase their defensive options as they prepare for their debut season in the Premier League.

Rumour Mill: Liverpool gearing up for a defender swoop

Kenny Dalglish Kenny Dalglish is working hard to shipped out the deadwoods at Anfield to refill his transfer kitty for at least one more new player before the new season kick-off.

Liverpool FC are weighting their option on moving Joe Cole to QPR and are keen to reduce their wage load. Milan Jovanovic, who are certain to be moving to the Belgian club after Liverpool agreed terms with Anderlecht on Tuesday evening.

A woeful pre-season defensive display from Liverpool FC which saw them leaking three goals each against Guangdong FC, Malaysia XI, Hull City, Galatasaray and Valerenga. With Martin Skrtel out on a calf injury, the 26-year-old played every minute of the Merseyside club's Premier League campaign last season, but has suffered with the injury during pre-season.

Dalglish would like to sign a new centre-back as cover for his team and Scott Dann and Ryan Shawcross names has been recently linked with a move to Anfield.

Elsewhere, reports has indicated Hull City manager Nigel Peearson are interested in signing Liverpool centre-back Daniel Ayala. The Tigers have made six signings already this summer but are still keen to add the 20-year-old to their ranks.

Dalglish is believed to rate Ayala in the £1million bracket but it is not known whether Hull agree with that valuation.

Now signing a new centre-back would be the top priority for Dalglish as Jamie Carragher and Sotirios Kyrgiakos are over 30-years-old. While Daniel Agger are injury prone and only left Academy graduate Andre Wisdom who recently signed an extension contract as cover plus Danny Wilson available for selection. If the Hull’s story are to be true, then Liverpool are freeing up the centre-back slot for a new player soon.

Pre-season: Hull 3-0 Liverpool

Hull City v Liverpool Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson and Alexander Doni made their debuts as Liverpool fell to a 3-0 defeat to Championship side Hull City on Saturday.

Goals from Robert Brady, Robert Koren and Jay Simpson gave the Tigers a friendly victory they will remember on a day when Kenny Dalglish fielded 22 players in a bid to get his hefty squad fit for the 2011-12 campaign.

Both sides wore black armbands in respect for those killed in yesterday's terrorist attack in Norway, where the Reds have a massive fan-base.

Dalglish will not be overly worried by the result, with fitness the main concern at this stage, and he will now turn his attentions to Thursday's match with Galatasaray.

Joe Cole made clear his intention to impress from the off with a delightful pass down the wing to Martin Kelly, who skewed his cross behind for a goal kick.

But it was the side that finished 11th in the Championship last season who threatened first, Aaron McLean pinging over after a misplaced pass from Jack Robinson.

Our 17-year-old full-back, who became Liverpool's youngest ever player on this ground at the end of 2009-10, soon made amends with a superbly timed tackle on Liam Rosenior.

Former Manchester United youngster Brady forced a first save in Liverpool colours from debutant Doni, who smothered comfortably at his near post.

The Brazilian had no chance on 21 minutes, however, following a neat move from Hull which started with left-back Joe Dudgeon and ended with a top-corner finish from the edge of the box by Brady.

Liverpool almost hit straight back with a magical pass from Alberto Aquilani which put David Ngog into a few yards of space, but the Frenchman was denied by a brilliant save from our own out-on-loan stopper Peter Gulacsi. Cole attempted to convert the parry but his effort spun well over.

Conor Coady was next to open up the Hull defence with another smart ball to Ngog, whose touch let him down this time.

At the other end, Hull captain Koren floated a free-kick towards the penalty spot where an unmarked McLean waited to execute a powerful header that flew just over the bar.

The two Hull men combined again for the home side's second goal, working an intricate one-two outside the penalty area before Koren thumped beyond Doni with a strike he'll dream about tonight.

The final chance of the first half for Liverpool followed a lofted ball from Aquilani which was met with a decent first touch from Ngog before possession was stolen by Paul McShane.

And so Liverpool went in 2-0 down at the break, though Dalglish will have been heartened by the adventure his midfielders showed with the ball and in particular the performance of young Coady.

The Liverpool boss made 11 changes at half-time, with new boys Henderson and Downing among those introduced for their debuts.

John Flanagan offered his greetings with a crunching tackle which would have earned more than a ticking off from the referee had this been a competitive encounter.

Downing was just a few inches away from opening his Reds account within two minutes of the restart, prompting a fingertip save from Adriano Basso with a right-foot hit following a pass from Dirk Kuyt.

This was a very different Liverpool to that seen in the first half, with Kuyt, Charlie Adam, Henderson and Andy Carroll all looking to impose themselves on the game.

Downing was next to test Basso with another low drive but the angle was too acute for the substitute goalkeeper to be seriously bothered.

Hull's third goal was unexpected, then, and Liverpool will be disappointed with the way they defended Kevin Kilbane's cross on 58 minutes, allowing the ball to be chested down to Simpson, who couldn't fail to beat Brad Jones from close range.

Liverpool almost pulled one back on 68 minutes when Adam squared across goal but Carroll couldn't make meaningful contact and the ball disappeared wide of goal.

A hat-trick of corners failed to produce anything for the visitors, while a terrific cross from Flanagan looked to be heading for the forehead of Carroll until Paul McKenna earned the appreciation of 20,924 fans with a superb intervention.

Kuyt and Flanagan both had chances to get their names on the scoresheet in the final seconds but it wasn't to be.
