The striker is out of contract at the end of the season, and it was widely reported that he would leave on a Bosman, with Celtic said to be one of the sides chasing him.

However, after Leverkusen's 1-0 defeat to Hannover on Saturday it was revealed that Voronin would sign for Liverpool instead.

The 27-year-old has scored six league goals this season, and was a key member of the Ukraine team that reached the quarter-finals of the 2006 World Cup.

He has reportedly agreed a four-year deal with the Anfield club, and his signing looks set to be the first confirmed move under Liverpool's new American owners.
