Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers rules out Daniel Agger sale

Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers insists that he has no plans to sell defender Daniel Agger this summer

Brendan Rodgers insists that Liverpool have no plans to cash in on Daniel Agger this summer.

The 29-year-old defender has been linked with a move away from Anfield after being limited to just 16 Premier League starts for the Reds last season.

He is a good player, he is experienced and we can use that in the upcoming season

However, speaking after Liverpool’s 2-1 pre-season friendly defeat by Brondby on Wednesday, the Northern Irishman insisted that Agger remains part of his first-team plans.

“Agger is one of the best players we have. He has been unlucky because he has been plagued by injuries last season,” Rodgers said.

“He is a good player, he is experienced and we can use that in the upcoming season.

“Daniel has signed a contract with us [which expires in June 2016] and he showed in the first half, what an excellent player he is.”
