Liverpool this afternoon (Monday) confirmed that Sotirios Kyrgiakos had left the club and joined Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg.

32-year-old Soto was given a new one year contract earlier this summer by Kenny Dalglish but with Liverpool reportedly in the market for a younger centre-back, they have decided to sell the giant Greek defender.

We already have Carragher, Agger and Skrtel as our main centre-back options with Kelly and Wilson who can step in if need be. The likes of Gary Cahill and Scott Dann continue to be linked with moves to Liverpool and the departure of Soto could be because Liverpool believe they are close in bringing in another centre-back.

It would make sense to bring someone else in first before letting Soto go but I am sure Kenny Dalglish has it all figured out.
