Liverpool accept bid for midfielder... Liverpool have bid accepted for midfielder

It's all going on at Anfield.

According to reports, it's a case of one in and one out at Liverpool as they accepted a bid for midfielder Joe Allen just hours before having a bid for Georginio Wijnaldum accepted by Newcastle.

The Liverpool Echo claim that Stoke City are now heavy favourites to secure Allen for a fee of £13 million, improving on the £8 million offered by Swansea for the Welsh midfielder.

Swansea, Allen's former club, may still match the Potters' bid but, as it stands, it appears as though the Welsh Xavi is on his way to the Britannia.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports are reporting that the Reds' approach for Newcastle's Wijnaldum is advancing quickly with the Magpies accepting a £25 million offer for the Dutchman on Thursday morning.

Wijnaldum signed for Newcastle just last year for around £14.5 million and Jurgen Klopp made the 25-year-old one of his top targets this summer.
