Konoplyanka Passes Medical but Deal Still on Hold

While the Liverpool, Dnipro, and Yevhen Konoplyanka's representatives continue to try and hammer out a deal, the player has passed a medical that at least keeps hopes for a completed transfer alive.

According to reports from Ukraine, Liverpool target Yevhen Konoplyanka has successfully undergone a medical in Dnipropetrovsk, a move that signals all parties still believe a deal to bring the winger to England is possible. However, despite the medical having been completed, a completed transfer as yet remains far from certain.

In addition to the two clubs disagreeing over the payment structure for any deal, the presence of multiple representatives on the player's side are further complicating the settling of commissions and agent fees. Despite the stumbling blocks, work towards a deal continues with just over four hours to go before the transfer window closes.

Reports elsewhere confirm Liverpool are involved in no other deals, either incoming or outgoing, and that no matter what happens in Ukraine over the next few hours there is no chance of any senior players leaving on loan or of the club bringing in a midfielder or fullback before the clock strikes eleven in England.
