James Milner is close to finalizing a deal with Brighton, according to talkSPORT.
The 37-year-old will be a free agent when his contract with Liverpool expires at the end of the season and will leave Anfield after eight brilliant years on Merseyside.
Milner signed for Liverpool in 2015 after canceling his contract at Manchester City.
He racked up 328 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side – scoring 26 goals – the most he has scored at a single club.
During his time at Liverpool, Milner won the Premier League, FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Community Shield and Club World Cup.
Although he entered the twilight of his career, the England international with 61 caps has still played 37 games in all competitions this season.
Jurgen Klopp is a huge admirer of the former Aston Villa man and was believed to want to extend his stay beyond the summer.
But Brighton have made a move and Milner is keen on a new challenge and the prospect of more starting time as he nears the end of his career.
Former Liverpool team-mate Adam Lallana is said to have played a role in convincing him to join the Seagulls.

Brighton have had a stellar season and beat Man United in dramatic circumstances on Thursday night to remain firmly in the hunt for European qualification.
They are not resting on their laurels and are moving quickly to secure their summer goals, with talkSPORT recently revealing they have agreed a club-record deal with Watford for Brazilian striker Joao Pedro.
The 21-year-old has been with the Hornets since January 2020 but is now expected to move on after two and a half seasons for a fee of around £30million.
Pedro, Watford’s top scorer with 11 goals in 35 league games this season, is set to officially complete his move once the transfer window opens in June.
