Dalglish in dark over transfers
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish insists he has not discussed potential transfer targets for the current window and does not even know whether the subject is up for discussion with principal owner John Henry, who is in town for this weekend's Merseyside derby.
The Reds have been linked with a host of players over the last few weeks but speculation increased when it became known Henry would be making his first visit to the city for two months. Although he has a meeting scheduled with Henry, Dalglish claims he has no idea what will crop up.
"It would be rude not to talk to them considering they employ us," said the 59-year-old Scot. "We will be having a conversation but I don't know what will be on the agenda."
Dalglish added: "We have not even had a conversation about transfers so there is no way I am going to pre-judge anything that is going to happen because if no players come in, you'll say I'm getting my P45, so I can't win.
"I am delighted with the players we have here and there is not any movement one way or the other about players."
Dalglish batted away questions about players the club were being linked with, joking: "I don't know who has written what because I haven't had time to look at papers - but it must be true.
"We will take it as it comes and as soon as we have anything to report to anyone we won't be trying to withhold news, which we think is beneficial to everyone.
"We are not trying to be obtrusive in any way, it is just a fact."
It is fair to say there are no immediate deals in the offing as director of football strategy Damien Comolli took the day off on Friday.
"There has been plenty of speculation but we are not contributing to that - we have nothing to report," said Dalglish. "I don't need to agree with the speculation or respond to it."
