Real Madrid defender Royston Drenthe has revealed he is set to leave the Bernabeu for Liverpool.
The former Netherlands under-21 star has been well-linked with a move out of the Spanish giants and is now confident he will be playing his football in the Barclays Premier League next season.
He was quoted as saying in the Daily Star: "I will soon be joining Liverpool. I hope I will have a good season with my new club."
Drenthe joined Madrid from Feyenoord in 2007 but the wing-back never quite established himself at the Bernabeu as he struggled to secure regular first-team action.
