Done Deal! Rickie Lambert set for Liverpool medical on Saturday, fee agreed with Southampton [PA]

Rickie Lambert is officially living the dream!

The Press Association are reporting on Friday morning that Lambert will undergo a medical with Liverpool on Saturday after the Merseyside giants and Southampton agreed a transfer fee thought to be around four million pounds.

For a life-long Liverpool fan, who spent many years in the lower leagues, this is an amazing outcome for Rickie Lambert.

Meanwhile, Southampton fans must be wondering who will be at St Mary’s next season, with Mauricio Pochettino left for Spurs and Lambert also heading for the exit.

And, the futures of Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana also look set to be away from Southampton.

This looks like a shrewd signing by Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, giving his side a clear “Plan B”, especially going into a season with Champions League football.
