Liverpool star hits out at exit talk to Arsenal: I'm not leaving!

Reds defender turns to social media in order to quell transfer rumours…

Liverpool centre back Daniel Agger has been implicated in transfer speculation linking the Denmark captain with a move to Barcelona or Arsenal after the player was quoted to have said that if his omission from Brendan Rodgers' first-team continues, he will be forced to look for regular football elsewhere.

This has since been vehemently denied by the player himself, who posted on social media the acronym to you'll never walk alone, seemingly committing himself to Liverpool.

According to a Telegraph report this morning, Agger was quoted to have said: 'If I don't play, and if the manager doesn't think I am good enough, that could make me leave Liverpool. I'm here to play football, nothing else. So if I don't play football, then I don't want to be here anymore.'

Liverpool acquired Agger for £6m in 2006, but could have almost trebled their money on the player in August, when a £14.6m bid was allegedly tabled by Barcelona, an offer that was obviously rejected. Despite the club's defiance on the matter, the La Liga kings remain keen, so too does Arsene Wenger.

Agger's clarification on the situation may well quell the exit talk as his primary ambition appears to be regaining his place in Rodgers' roster rather than chasing a transfer.
