Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers quiet on January plans
Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers refuses to be drawn on speculation linking Daniel Sturridge and Thomas Ince to Reds
Brendan Rodgers was giving nothing away about Liverpool’s plans for the January transfer window ahead of Saturday’s clash with Fulham at Anfield.
The Reds are reported to be close to concluding a double deal for Chelsea’s Daniel Sturridge and Blackpool’s Thomas Ince as the Northern Irishman looks to bolster his attacking options at Anfield.
Rodgers, who is also reportedly interested in signing Birmingham City goalkeeper Jack Butland, admits he would always welcome the addition of exciting young British talent to his squad but refused to discuss specific transfer targets.
“If we can get talented young players, and talented young British players in here, then that will be fantastic for us,” Rodgers said.
“The negotiations for any of that is taken place by the people above me and we’ll conclude what we can as early as we can.
“I can tell you that our scouting network have been looking high and low for all sorts of talents to come in here and the minute we do bring anyone in, I will speak to you all day about them.
“But at this moment in time there’s nothing to speak about, only the players that we have here.”
