Rodgers eyes more out than in

Brendan Rodgers hopes there will be more outs than ins on transfer deadline day as he shapes his Liverpool squad for the season ahead.

It has been a busy summer transfer window so far for the Reds, with ten players coming into Anfield, while 19 have gone out either on loan or permanently.

However, fringe players such as Fabio Borini, who is wanted by Sunderland, and Stoke-linked Oussama Assaidi still remain at the club.

Rodgers has warned those on the fringe of his squad they face limited game time if they do not depart on Monday, while he thinks few – if any – new players will be recruited.

The Liverpool boss told The Times: "There'll probably be more movement out than coming in, I would say.

"We've still got offers for players to go.

"Every player here knows their situation, so if they're here after that deadline on Monday, they've decided to stay but their game time will be very limited.

"There are not many more to come, if any."
