Iago Aspas insists that he has no plans to force a transfer away from Liverpool this summer.

The striker has made just five Premier League starts for Brendan Rodgers’ side this season after moving to Merseyside from Celta Vigo in a £7m deal last summer.

But the 26-year-old Spaniard is determined to stay at Anfield and fight for a spot the Reds’ starting line-up.

“I still have three more years under contract at the club,” said Aspas.

“I took a big jump when I decided to move from Celta to Liverpool, and I’m not going to jump off a bridge wanting to leave the club just one year after.

“I am happy because of the team but a player is selfish and wants to play more. This is obvious.”

Speaking back in January, Liverpool boss Rodgers admitted that Aspas faces a tough test in attempting to oust prolific strike duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge.

“In fairness to him, he hasn’t had a lot of opportunities because of the qualities of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge when he was fit.”
