Shaqiri cuts short holiday to join Liverpool.


Swiss Star Xherdan Shaqiri has gone to England after admitting he had to cut short his holiday for a Liverpool medical, as per reports.

Stoke who are already relegated have accepted a bid of £13.5m after Liverpool met the release clause valuation in Shaqiri’s contract.

The Swiss midfielder said it was “no secret” he wished to leave Stoke following their relegation from the Premier League.


His last-minute winner against Serbia sent Switzerland through to the World Cup round of 16 before their campaign drew to a close with a defeat to Sweden.

Shaqiri joined Stoke in 2015 from Inter Milan before going on to make 84 league appearances for the club. He has two years left on his current deal at the bet365 Stadium.
