Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is believed to be prepared to allow back-up goalkeeper Alexander Doni and Brad Jones both leave the club as he looks to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers stopper Dorus de Vries.

The Daily Mail has reported that Rodgers is happy with current number one Pepe Reine but would like to bring in a new number two and is hoping to complete a £750,000 deal for Wolves keeper De Vries.

Rodgers knows the Dutch goalkeeper well after their time spent together at Swansea where De Vries was the number one for four seasons before being sold to Wolves last summer and struggling to force his way into the first team.

The 31-year-old joined Wolves on a free after running out his contract but after a season in which he made just one Premier League appearance he may consider his future as he would now be second choice at a Championship club.

A return to the Premier League and the fact that he could link up with former boss Rodgers could well make it a desirable option for the former Dunfermline stopper.

His arrival is also likely to spell the end of Doni and Jones who both struggled last season when they were handed a rare chance after Pepe Reina was sent off Newcastle.

Doni was brought straight into the side but he was also shown a red card in a fixture against Blackburn, before Jones came on to save the penalty against Yakubu and then give away another when fouling the same player.

This was Jones' first appearance since December 2010 and only his third in more than 20 months after being signed as a back-up keeper from Middlesbrough.

Liverpool also have 22-year-old keeper Peter Gulacsi on their books but he has never started a game for the club and has been sent on a number of loan deals to clubs including Hereford, Tranmere and Hull City.
