'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hodgson Confirms Lambert Move

England manager Roy Hodgson has said that Rickie Lambert's move to Liverpool will help England.

Speaking to Sky Sports it's pretty poor form really for him to talk about this ahead of any official announcement by either club, and when asked the question he should've ducked it, but instead he said.

'Yes, I congratulate him. And I congratulate Liverpool signing a good player. When he plays you will see a fella running around with all the joy that his heart can muster because he is very happy to be with England and he's very happy that the move to Liverpool has gone through.'

Continuing the chat he did express 'sympathy' for Southampton by saying it's just the nature of the game that sometimes you can't hold onto your better players when bigger clubs come calling, because the top players all want to compete in the Champions League as it's where the 'money is.'

With it being reported that Southampton have also rejected bids from Liverpool for Adam Lallana, Sky Sports are also saying that former manager Mauricio Pochettino is not planning - as previously reported - to try and hijack Liverpool's efforts by going for him themselves.

Lambert himself has spoken, and confirmed he has now taken a medical with the club, but he wouldn't be drawn on talking about it further.

'The medical went well, I'll speak properly about it, hopefully, very shortly. It's been a crazy football year to be honest, the way it's carrying on.'

Confirming that he had already spoken to Steven Gerrard 'a while ago' about the move, he added that he believes he'll be ready to speak properly about all this on Monday, which is a good indication that the suggestions of an unveiling will take place at the beginning of next week.
