Benitez confident Pennant will join Portsmouth

The Reds have agreed a fee with Portsmouth for Pennant.

“Pennant – we have agreed with Portsmouth,” Benitez said at his press conference on Saturday. “We are waiting for news but I think it will be okay.

“I think he’ll say yes and everything will be sorted.”

Pennant said on Friday that he is considering staying at Liverpool to fight for his future at the club.
