Liverpool to sign James Milner on free transfer

LIVERPOOL, England (AP) -- Liverpool will sign James Milner on a free transfer on July 1 once the England midfielder's contract at Manchester City expires.

Liverpool says Thursday that the club has agreed personal terms with the 29-year-old Milner, with the deal to be completed after a medical examination.

The arrival of Milner -- a hard-working, versatile midfielder -- will help fill the gap vacated by long-time Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who is leaving after 17 years to join the Los Angeles Galaxy.

City tried to retain the services of Milner, who became more of a regular in the team last season. Milner reportedly wants to play more in central midfield.
