Brendan Rodgers remained tight-lipped about potential new arrivals at Liverpool in January and refused to confirm if the Reds are close to signing Daniel Sturridge.

The Chelsea striker was due to undergo a medical at Liverpool’s Melwood training ground on Sunday, with personal terms believed to have already been agreed.

The Reds have also been linked with a move to sign Blackpool forward Thomas Ince, but Rodgers refused to comment on any transfer speculation.

“Nothing will be complete until we’ve signed a player and once we do, I’ll have no problem in speaking about who we’ve signed. But until anything is done on paper, there is nothing to say,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.

“We’ll always do our business privately and in the way we want to do it. As you’ve seen over the last number of weeks, there are always going to be things written about players, clubs and dealings.

“We’re confident we can get some business done early in January, which will really help the squad. Until that happens, there is nothing really to add.”

Rodgers added: “We don’t want to make many [signings] in January, but the one or two we do I think can make a difference and help us. If we can do that, I think we’ll have a good second half to the season.”
