Joe Allen: Happy to make Stoke move

Joe Allen’s agent says Liverpool are yet to make contact regarding the midfielder’s future but “would ask for too much money” to sell him.

Allen remains unsure about his Liverpool future, despite reports linking the midfielder with a move to Swansea City or Celtic.

Wales international Allen, who has one year remaining on his current deal at Anfield, has been heavily linked with a return to his former club Swansea, with Liverpool expected to bolster their midfield this summer.

However, former Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is understood to be keen on making the 26-year-old one of his first signings at Celtic, and will be able to offer Champions League football.

But according to the player’s representative, Glenn Corcoran, Allen’s future remains up in the air.

“Joe has a year left on his contract at Liverpool and nobody has spoken to us about extending that,” he said.

“The club have not spoken to us about selling him either. I haven’t given any thought whatsoever to it with regards to Celtic or any club.

“If Liverpool were willing to sell — and that is a big if because I’ve not had that conversation with the club — they would ask for too much money for him.

“I don’t know if Celtic at this moment would be willing to spend that sort of money and the wages would also be a massive issue.”
