Liverpool Message Board
Feyenoord ace Dirk Kuyt will sign for Liverpool within the next 48 hours, claim newspaper reports in the UK today.
It is reported that the player has a £10.3million escape clause in his contract which would explain why Liverpool are refusing to even consider meeting Feyenoord's demands for a fee closer to £14million.
Four previous bids from Anfield are reported to have been rejected by Feyenoord. They included various amounts of cash along with combinations including Jan Kromkamp and Jerzy Dudek. A final cash offer of £8.25million was also reportedly rejected.
Insider sources have responded accordingly.

LIVERPOOL are "mystified" by reports claiming they are on the brink of landing Feyenoord striker Dirk Kuyt.
Morning newspaper reports claim the Reds are on the brink of landing the Dutch international for £10m.
There really are conflicting messages going around, just found this:
"But Liverpool have not renewed interest in the player since their only bid to date - a player plus cash offer - was rejected."
I think it is about time Kuyt make up his mind. Fair enough if his club wants more for the player, but if he has the desire to play for one of the greatest clubs in football, he should go and tell his manager to get down to business and stop acting like a complete asshole for a 10% differene in price.
