Liverpool make £15m Joe Allen bid

Liverpool have made a £15m bid for Swansea midfielder Joe Allen. The fee triggers the release clause in the Wales international's contract.

The saga over Allen’s potential switch to join former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers at Anfield has rumbled on over recent weeks. It is understood the Welsh club rejected an initial offer of £12.5m last month.

Rodgers swapped the Liberty Stadium for Anfield earlier this summer.

Meanwhile, tonight in the Europa league third qualifying round, the Reds host FC Gomel leading 1-0 from their first leg , kick off is at five past 8.
