Sky Sports runs with the storythat this is likely to happen, but not for two years, by which time the Portuguese maestro will be 31 and probably past his world-beating best.

Liverpool are set to make a move for 32-year-old former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who is currently a free agent, to put pressure on the club's current No.1 Simon Mignolet.

Mignolet has looked less than convincing so far this season, and manager Brendan Rodgers believes the Spanish keeper's experience could be very valuable at Anfield.

Craig Dawson has signed a new three-year deal with West Brom that will keep him at the club until 2017.

The 24-year-old centre back has started all six of Albion's league matches and claimed his first goal for the club in the 4-0 win over Burnley on Sunday.

Craig was very unsettled when I first arrived in the summer but we as a club were never interested in selling him.

We felt he had the potential to be a top centre-back and once he got his head settled and knew he wasn't going anywhere he started to put in very good performances.

His level of consistency has kept him in the team despite having our top international centre-backs breathing down his neck.
