12am Deadline Day update: Liverpool fail for Konoplyanka, WBA sign striker

Liverpool have missed out on the signing of Yevhen Konoplyanka, but West Brom signed a striker late on.

Liverpool's number one deadline day target Yevhen Konoplyanka will not be signing with the club, report multiple sources.

Liverpool's managing director Ian Ayre had flown to Ukraine to attempt to close a deal for the £15 million valued international winger.

The player's agent had confirmed earlier in the day he was pushing to get the deal done, but Reds seemingly failed to persuade club and player to do business in time for the transfer deadline.

SkySports reported Liverpool met the release clause, the player was keen to come, but the club president of Dnipro simply refused to sign the paperwork.

Liverpool missed out on Mohamed Salah earlier in the window to Chelsea, and have failed to bring a single player in.
