Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez could be on his way back to boyhood club Newell's Old Boys in Argentina.

The 30-year-old international revealed he had agreed a move in principle.

Rodriguez came through the youth set-up at the Rosario-based Newell's Old Boys before moving to Espanyol in 2002.

"The president [William Lorenzo] called me and I said 'yes'," said Rodriguez. "It depends on the contract I have in Liverpool. Maybe that can be loosened a little."

Rodrigues enjoyed a successful end to last season's Premier League campaign with Liverpool, scoring two hat-tricks as he hit seven goals in three matches.
