Reds boss rubbishes Agger rumours

Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has played down reports linking Daniel Agger with a January move away from Anfield.

The 26-year-old Denmark defender's future has been the subject of speculation lately, with Wolfsburg sporting director Dieter Hoeness claiming the centre-back had been "offered to clubs around Europe", but Hodgson has dismissed such talk.

He told club website "Daniel Agger has not been 'offered' to anybody. Daniel Agger is a Liverpool player and there's a good chance he'll be in the Liverpool team on Saturday (against Bolton)."

Hodgson added: "So if ever you hear Daniel Agger is being 'offered', it's not by Liverpool Football Club - it's by unscrupulous people who are second guessing and looking at players who have not been in the team in the last couple of weeks and suggesting they might be available.

"But anytime you read that, it is untrue."
