Liverpool goalkeeepr Brad Jones concedes that he is really looking forward to the club's pre-season tour of Australia.

Goalkeeper Brad Jones has admitted that he cannot wait to return to his native Australia with Liverpool during the summer.

The Reds recently confirmed that they would take on Melbourne Victory in a pre-season friendly in July.

Looking ahead to the trip, Jones has insisted that it will be of benefit to both the club and the Australian public.

"I think it'll be massive. It's been a while since Australia has had a big English team go over," he told the club's official website. "I can remember as a kid, the likes of Nottingham Forest and teams like that coming over. That was amazing.

"For Liverpool to be going out there will definitely be something special. I'm sure the Australian public will enjoy it.

"The fact there are so many Brits out there, never mind how many Scousers there are out there, will make it a great spectacle and I am sure we can expect a good attendance."

Jones joined Liverpool back in 2010 from Middlesbrough.
