(GSM) – Serbia striker Milan Jovanovic insists he will not pull out of his proposed move to Liverpool after recent reports suggested the Serbian may change his mind over his move to Anfield following Rafa Benitez’s departure from the club.
According to several reports, Benitez is planning to take Jovanovic with him to Internazionale. However, having agreed a pre-contract with Liverpool in February, Jovanovic insists his move to Anfield is still on.
The 29-year-old says that despite Benitez’s departure, the Serb will still move to Liverpool once he receives his work permit.
“I am going to Liverpool. I have signed there for three years. I repeat: no pre-agreement – a real contract,” Jovanovic told Nieuwsblad.
“And the departure of Benítez changes nothing. I have maintained contact with the executive board of Liverpool and everything is good.
“I am working to arrange my visa for England. Next week I go there to collect my work permit.
“Everything is in order since in the last two years I have played 75 per cent of the matches for my national side. Next I am looking for a house.
“On the 14th or 15th July I will join the squad for a training camp in Switzerland. But, as from Thursday, I want to start my individual training programme so I can show them immediately that I am worth a place in the side.”
