Rodgers rubbishes Sturridge clause talk

Brendan Rodgers has insisted that no player can dictate to him their position in the Liverpool team as the club attempt to complete the signing of Daniel Sturridge.

Daniel Sturridge wants a central striking role

Reports claim Sturridge, 23, has demanded a contract clause specifying that he will only be asked to play as a striker if he moves to Anfield from Chelsea in January.

Rodgers has refused to comment specifically on Sturridge, even though Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez said on Sunday that the forward had undergone a medical on Merseyside ahead of a proposed £12 million transfer.

But the Liverpool boss, who is also hopeful of bringing in Blackpool midfielder Tom Ince when the transfer window opens on January 1, is adamant that he will only talk about signings once a deal is done.

He said: “Like at most clubs, nothing will be complete until we’ve signed a player at the beginning of January. Once we do, I’ll have no problem speaking about who we’ve signed. But until everything’s down on paper, there’s nothing to say, really.”

Asked about suggestions that a deal had been held up because of demands made by Sturridge and his agent, Rodgers told a press conference: “You guys keep writing and saying all these things. No one would come into this football club and demand where they play, that’s for sure.

“But when any club negotiates with any players, it isn’t straightforward. But we’ll always do the business privately in the way we want to do it. And as you’ve seen over the last few weeks, there are always things that are going to be written about players and clubs, and the dealings.

“But we’re confident we can get some business done early in January, which will really help the squad. Until that happens, there’s nothing really to add.”
