Liverpool Echo are now reporting that the Anfield giants have negotiated a buy back and a sell on clause for the Spanish attacker as well.

The 19 year old is now discussing personal terms with Norwich City. Contract talks with the player broke down earlier this summer as Liverpool refused to match his wage demands of around 10,000 pounds per week.
