Liverpool have completed a deal that will see Manchester City’s Head Physio Lee Nobes leave City after 11 years to join them after the conclusion of the international break.
James Pearce has confirmed the news via social media.

Nobes will join Anfield to replace former Head Physio Matt Konopinski, who left the role in order to take up a position with the FA back in September.
Nobes has been a key part of City’s set up ever since his arrival from Oldham Athletic in October 2007 and has seen countless changes at the club, so a move to Liverpool will certainly be a refreshing test for the physio.
Thought to be popular amongst both players and staff, Klopp will surely be happy to have Nobes join the team and he’ll again have the opportunity to work with both James Milner and Daniel Sturridge, who he worked with during their stints in Manchester.
