Rafa Tracks Simon Church

Reading striker Simon Church during the season - with a view to signing him next year.

Former Liverpool boss Roy Evans has spoken to Rafa Benitez about the talented captain of Wales Under-21s.

Evans, who is the Wales assistant boss, rates Church, 20, highly and has told Benitez to keep an eye out for him in the Championship.

Meanwhile, disgraced keeper Charles Itandje is leaving Anfield to join Greek side Panionios on a free transfer.

Liverpool have been looking to move Itandje on since he angered fans by laughing and behaving in an inappropriate way during the 20th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster.

The Frenchman, 26, had already dropped to third in the pecking order at Anfield following last summer's capture of Diego Cavalieri.
