Cape Town - Nathaniel Clyne is set to join Liverpool after betting has been suspended on his potential move.
Teamtalk report that Southampton have accepted an improved £12.5 million offer for the English right-back.
Last month, Liverpool saw their first approach - a £10 million - reject but now widespread reports indicate that the Reds have reached an agreement with the Saints.
The 24-year-old defender was a major part of Southampton's remarkable 2014/15 season but manager Ronald Koeman looks set to lose the full back.
Clyne has just one year left on his current deal at St. Mary's forcing the Saints to cash in on their star player.
Clyne joins Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren as players to have jumped ship to join Liverpool in recent times.
Liverpool have already add five players to their squad this summer and look to have once again beaten Manchester United to a player's signature after Roberto Firmino was confirmed as the latest Liverpool player earlier this week.
