Daniel Agger is on the verge of completing a cut price £3million move to former club Brondby, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The Dane has been consistently linked with a move away from Anfield this summer, following the arrival of £20million Croatian Dejan Lovren from Southampton.
The likes of Barcelona, Napoli and Arsenal have all been linked with a move for the Reds vice-captain, but Agger is understood to only be interested in a return to his homeland.
The transfer has been complicated by the fact Brondby can afford nowhere near the 29-year-old’s value, but it now appears the Reds are prepared to let Agger move on a permanent deal for a cut price of £3million.
Agger has made 232 appearances for Liverpool since signing for £5.6million from Brondby in January 2006.
The classy centre back helped Rafael Benitez’s side to the 2007 Champions League final, scoring a crucial semi-final goal against Chelsea at Anfield.
He was part of the side that won the League Cup in 2012 under Kenny Dalglish, although last season he found his first team chances restricted following the arrivals of Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho.
Should the deal go through, Agger will likely get a hero’s reception at Brondby, having seen his name sung consistently when returning for a pre-season friendly with the Reds in July.
Agger initially joined the club at the age of 12 and helped them clinch the Danish Superliga title in 2005 prior to his move to Anfield.
