Breaking News: Suarez to stay at Liverpool

One of the summers longest transfer stories finally came to end moments ago after it was confirmed that Luis Suarez will stay at Anfield after he spoke to Uruguayan reporters

Finally one of the summers longest running transfer saga’s came to an end just moments ago after it was confirmed that Liverpool striker Luis Suarez will remain at the club and no more bids will be lodged or heard for the player.

Suarez has been the target of much speculation after he publically declared that he had a clause to leave the Reds as they hadn’t secured Champions League football.

Arsenal were the first to lodge a bid, offering £40m + £1, (enough to trigger the clause) but the move was immediately batted away as Liverpool held firm on the player.

The Uruguayan has missed the start of the season as he finishes off a ban for violent conduct, but in that time Liverpool have recorded three 1-0 wins in the Premier League with Daniel Sturridge scoring all of their goals.

Competition for a starting berth at the Merseyside club also hotted up this morning after it was announced that Victor Moses had joined the Anfield side from Chelsea after the Blues added to their strike force with Samuel Eto’o.

The striker confirmed that he was staying to reporters in his home country as he prepares for the international break saying: 'When I left England, I had no news and I have no news now. To me, this is a closed chapter.

"I always said that if something came up then fine, but if not then I'd stay happily at Liverpool, and that's what I'm going to do.

"There were reports of several clubs signing me, but in the end I'm happy because I'm staying at Liverpool."

The news that there will be no move for Suarez will be a welcome relief for all at Liverpool as he is seen as a key if they are to remain competitive for the rest of the season, (they currently lie 1st in the Premier League after three wins from three).

Suarez was one of the stand out players in the league last season making 44 appearances in all competitions and scoring 30 goals.

Despite his record, one question to consider is will Suarez walk back into the Liverpool squad if they win all of the games in which he is banned for and should he do so?
