Jovanovic hasn’t signed – agent

The agent of Milan Jovanovic claims his client is not on the verge

of signing a pre-contract agreement with Liverpool.

Reports earlier in the week had suggested that the Serbian

playmaker was close to committing his future to the Reds and was

expected to form part of Rafa Benitez’s squad in 2010/11.

However, it has now emerged that such a deal has not been put

in place, with the Standard Liege forward yet to decide where his

next move will take him.

Jovanovic has plenty of avenues to explore, with numerous

clubs monitoring his situation.

Liverpool had hoped to beat the rush for his signature by

reaching an agreement in January, but could be about to see those

efforts come to nothing.

“There are many possibilities,” Jovanovic’s agent Zoran

Stojadinovic told Superdeporte.

“The situation will be resolved soon, but he has not signed

for any club as yet.”

It is believed that Spanish giants Valencia have edged ahead

in the race to land Jovanovic, with Stojadinovic admitting that

discussions with the Primera Liga outfit are ‘very advanced’.

However, there are plenty of other sides still in the frame

and nothing has been ruled out as yet.

“There is plenty of interest from Spain,” added Stojadinovic.

“But there are also a number of clubs from across Europe that

remain keen.”
