Raheem Sterling has left hospital after finishing his Manchester City medical as his £49m transfer from Liverpool nears completion on Tuesday afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed on Monday the deal to make Sterling the most expensive English footballer would go through subject to a medical check.

And the 20-year-old, who turned down the offer of a new Liverpool contract earlier this year, is expected to join City's pre-season tour of Australia if the move is completed.
Rodgers this week insisted Sterling leaves Liverpool on good terms despite the behaviour of the player and his agent Aidy Ward attracting criticism from Anfield greats including Jamie Carragher towards the end of last season.

Sky Sports analyst Carragher now believes Liverpool have struck a good deal for the England forward, who joined the club from QPR's academy in 2010 and has gone on to score 23 times in 129 games.Merseyside Police, meanwhile, continue to investigate after abusive messages aimed at Sterling's three-year-old daughter were posted on twitter.

A spokesman for the force said: "We are taking the incident extremely seriously and an investigation by detectives in Liverpool CID is on-going.
