Liverpool to bring in United midfielder and to axe Pennant

Liverpool are readying to see off competition from Aston Villa to sign Newcastle United midfielder James Milner. The England under-21 international has been linked with a move away from St James' Park for some time now and Villa and Liverpool are favourites to sign him. (Daily Mirror)

The former Leeds United midfielder has impressed Rafa Benitez over the past few months, so much so, that Benitez is ready to spend £6 million on the 22-year old. Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill is also keen to sign the player but it is thought now that Milner would prefer a move to Anfield. Meanwhile, with James Milner likely to sign for the club soon, Jermaine Pennant is likely to be heading out of the club. Benitez is ready to axe the 25-year old after only two years at the club.

I personally think bringing in Milner is a bad idea. He is quite frankly a decent player at best. I don't think he has what it takes to improve Liverpool in any way and I feel the club should be aimer higher than somebody like James Milner. I do however think getting rid of Pennant is a good thing because he is muck and never should of been brought to the club in the first place.
