Liverpool news and rumour round-up: Wednesday’s biggest stories for the Reds…
Rickie Lambert determined to pursue Liverpool success
Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert turned down a £5m deadline day move to Aston Villa after deciding to remain at Anfield and fight for his place, reports the Daily Mirror.
Hull City, Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion also enquired over the availability of the England international but were left disappointed by the player’s decision.
Lambert has found it difficult to hold down a regular first-team spot so far this season, while his chances are likely to become even more restricted following the return from injury of Daniel Sturridge.
