Jose Enrique staying at Anfield as Newcastle deal falls through

Posted by

Jose Enrique’s proposed deadline day move to Newcastle United fell through after the player failed to agree personal terms.

According to the Echo, the Spaniard was unhappy that Newcastle failed to match his £65,000 per week Liverpool wage, and was also unimpressed with the length of the deal being offered.

Despite being told he has no future under Klopp, the 30-year-old will now stay with us until the end of the season when his contract expires.

We paid Newcastle £7 million for his services in 2011. He was initially a big hit, but his form started to fall away and he only made a small handful of appearances in the whole of 2015.

He rejected a move to West Brom on deadline day last summer, meaning this is the second time a move away from the club has fallen through.

Since Klopp took over he has featured just three times – starting the two FA Cup games against Exeter and coming on as a late sub in our 0-0 draw with West Ham last weekend. He is now behind Moreno, Flanagan, and Brad Smith in the left back role.
