Doni released by Liverpool

Goalkeeper Alexander Doni is understood to have been released by Liverpool with immediate effect.

The experienced goalkeeper joined the Reds from Roma in a lucrative free transfer after spending six years with the Serie A club.

But he was unable to force his way ahead of Pepe Reina at Anfield, making just four Premier League appearances for Liverpool.

In fact, fellow back-up keeper Brad Jones has also seen first-team action ahead of the Brazilian relegating him to third choice.

The 33-year-old is now set to return to his homeland in a bid to force his way back into the national team ahead of next year's World Cup having last featured for his country in 2010.
