Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits signings unlikely

The Reds chief has stated that he is happy with his squad and would only make a move today if ‘star quality’ became available.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the Merseyside club are unlikely to add any new players in the dying hours of the transfer window.

The Reds have been bolstered with the return of Daniel Sturridge from injury and spent big in the summer.

As such, the Northern Irish manager has stated that the Kop should not get overly excited about the constant transfer rumours surrounding the club.

“We will be very quiet. I said we are looking to keep all players here, it will be quiet,” he stated in today’s press conference, published in The Mirror.

“I think the players we have and the market dictates it. I am happy with the team and the way the squad is developing, we want to keep all the players here.

“Unless there's something there we really believe then we don't want to stop the development of out young players. Rather than look at bringing in a senior player we want to look within and look at the talents we have.

“You always have to look for that star quality, but if it's not available you work with what you have.”

Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for Danny Ings today, by the Daily Mail, but it remains to be seen where the Burnley striker will end up. Rodgers’ comments indicate that the Merseyside outfit may well be happy to leave potential recruitment until the summer.

The Reds have suffered following the summer departure of Luis Suarez, with some of the summer additions brought to the club with his transfer fee failing to hit the ground running.

Rodgers’ side recorded a 2-0 victory over West Ham at the weekend and as such are sitting in seventh place in the table, four points adrift of the Champions League qualification places.
