Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan ‘wanted by Newcastle’

Liverpool kept Ragnar Klavan from the clutches of Newcastle this summer, according to reports.

The Estonian centre-back is largely used as cover at the centre of defence for the Reds, with Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren the favoured partnership.

But Liverpool were able to resist an approach from Premier League rivals Newcastle for his signature on Deadline Day, report the Newcastle Chronicle.

Rafa Benitez was desperate to land two new faces on the final day of the window, but only got a deal for Federico Fernandez over the line.

Klavan is not in contention for Liverpool’s season opener with West Ham through injury.
