Of course, in the parallel universe known as "cyberspace" there are no secrets, so whilst Liverpool appear to be keeping schtum on any recent transfer activity, the Dutchman Royston Drenthe thought he'd throw caution to the wind, and announce his new job to his Facebook "friends".
One man who will be particularly chuffed about this is Ryan Babel. After the jump you'll find a clip of the pair rapping together on a gobbledygook hip hop track…

UPDATE: According to Drenthe's agent, this is a hoax and he will be staying with Real Madrid. Furthermore: "Royston does not have a Facebook page, a Twitter page or a MySpace page. We will be taking legal action against the person who set up this false Royston Drenthe account." Josh Burt has been placed on Fake Deadspin Probation.
