PHOTO: Rickie Lambert signs Liverpool contract?

Rickie Lambert

Leaked photos appear to show Rickie Lambert signing his contract at Liverpool.

Liverpool are poised to seal a deal for Rickie Lambert on Monday, and a picture claims to show the striker putting pen to paper on a contract already.

The striker jetted off with England to Miami earlier on Sunday with the rest of the squad, but was at Liverpool on Saturday for a medical.

The Southampton forward, 32, is to join in a £4 million deal, and looks thrilled to become a Reds player at last.

As pointed out by This Is Anfield, Lambert is wearing the club's new training wear released only last week, adding to indications the picture is genuine.

Supporters would be advised to wait until there is confirmation from the club itself, but all the signs point to this being one transfer fans can bank on as the Reds begin their spending ahead of 2014/15.
