Liverpool transfers: Brendan Rodgers expects quiet end to deadline day
Brendan Rodgers expects quiet end to transfer window for Liverpool
Brendan Rodgers is concentrating on keeping all his players rather than making new signings before the end of deadline day.
The Liverpool boss has yet to make a signing this month and is not expected to do so before Monday night’s 23.00 GMT deadline.
Rodgers, whose side are in seventh place in the table. says he is satisfied with the squad that he has at his disposal and his priority is to ensure no players leave.
“We’ll be very quiet,” Rodgers told his media conference on Monday afternoon.
“I said at the beginning of the window, we were looking to keep all the players here, so it’ll be a quiet window for us.”
However, even without any new additions, Rodgers claims he is confident in his side as they look to continue their progress for the rest of the campaign.
Rodgers added: “With the group of players we have – and obviously the market dictates it as well – I am happy with how the team and the squad is developing and between now and the end of the season we’ll look to continue with that improvement.
“We would want to keep all the players here.”
Liverpool have improved significantly since the start of the new year, winning their last three matches to nil, after a frustrating first half of the season.
Saturday’s 2-0 win at home to West Ham United saw Daniel Sturridge return from a five-month injury lay-off and score the second goal at Anfield.
Even before the England international’s return, the Reds were beginning to find their feet in front of the net but with their talisman back, many would expect Liverpool to sustain a serious top-four challenge.
