“We could turn around and make that awkward and then they will go in the summer anyway. Or we can talk to Liverpool and try and get sell-ons, which they don’t have to give us.”
Both of those lads, because of the relationship we’ve got with Liverpool which could see some players come in the other direction, we’ve opted for a good working relationship (with). We’ve asked them if they will stay and they said no. So we made a commercial decision to try and get the best arrangement.”
