    Defender set to leave Liverpool

    By Carl Halsall

    Long-serving Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel, is set to leave Anfield in this transfer window after holding talks with Turkish side Fenerbahce.

    Skrtel, who is now aged 31, has been at Anfield since 2008 after signing from Zenit Saint Petersburg for £6.5 million.

    Skrtel represented his country Slovakia during Euro 2016, where he was the captain, and reached the round of 16 with his country eventually succumbing to Germany in a 3-0 defeat.

    With Liverpool already signing centre-back Joel Matip from FC Schalke 04, and Dejan Lovren in form, possibly Mamadou Sakho and Joe Gomez back fit for the new season, it seems that Skrtel has fallen down the pecking order at Anfield, and a move to Turkey looks imminent.

    Former Liverpool players have moved to the Turkish side Fenerbahce in recent times including; Raul Meireles, who currently still plays for them, and Dirk Kuyt who played for them from 2012-2015.

    Skrtel has made 320 appearances in his Liverpool career, but has been limited recently with injuries and lack of form, and he only made 27 appearances last season.

    Fenerbahce have confirmed the transfer story on their twitter account that they had began talks with Skrtel in a reported deal of around £5.5 million.
