Liverpool Blow As Barcelona Starlet Set To Pen New Deal

Liverpool's hopes of signing Barcelona starlet Cristian Tello have been hit after news emerged that the forward is set to sign a new deal.

Negotiations between the player and the La Liga leaders had become prolonged and for a period it looked like he was destined for the Premier League, with Brendan Rodgers showing interest as well as Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

But the minor contractual issues have now been ironed out by the player's agent Josep Maria Orobitg and the Catalan club's sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, according to Spanish paper Sport.

The 21-year-old is expected to put pen to paper on a new deal this week that will keep him at the Nou Camp until 2016.
