Liverpool's Daniel Agger unsure of future ahead of transfer deadline

The Liverpool defender has been linked with a move away from the club for much of the summer.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is unsure whether he will be at the club when the transfer window closes, casting further doubt on his future.

The Dane appears to have slipped down the pecking order at Anfield following the signing of Dejan Lovren this summer from Southampton. He has been partnering Martin Skrtel at the club in the opening two games, whilst Mamadou Sakho is trying to fight his way into the side. Kolo Toure is also another option Liverpool have at the heart of their defence. 

Agger also denied that stories that he had broken down in tears in front of manager Brendan Rodgers and informed him he would like to leave the club, saying he had left the tour of the United States because of a knee injury which has since made him unavailable for selection.

The Liverpool Echo picked up on quotes from a Danish newspaper, where the Reds' vice-captain says: 

“The future is complicated. There are a few things that has to be sorted and we have to take it from there. I actually don’t know what will happen. It is a bit up to Liverpool.

“I have had niggling injuries at the wrong times and I have to say that it is difficult to change the team when it is winning. I am not frustrated by that. I am frustrated the way it happened and the way it was handled.

“There was nothing true in that story whatsoever. I went home from the US because I had problems with my knee and had had so for some time.

“Brendan Rodgers and I talk with honesty to each other but the last thing I will ever do is stand and whine in front of someone. Especially when it comes to football, because in football there is nothing to whine about.”

Agger's injury record hasn't been great as he has never really had a season injury free. Also, there have been reports over the summer suggesting that Liverpool are prepared to listen to offers for the 29-year-old, and given the number of options at the club, it would seem the right time to cash in for the club.

If the Dane's quotes are anything to go by, the ball seems to be firmly in Liverpool's court over his future - and if he is told he can leave then maybe he and his representatives could be busy on the lookout for another club.
