Victor pulled the plug on his move to Liverpool after a row with Deportivo La Coruna.Liverpool target Victor has revealed a disagreement between himself and Deportivo La Coruna ended his hopes of moving to Anfield.
The European champions had lined up a deal to sign the former Real Madrid man before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday.
Victor, who is coming to the end of his contract, was hoping that Deportivo would pay him a fee for moving on.
But Deportivo refused to meet Victor's request and the winger insists he will now stay at La Riazor until the end of the season.
"It was impossible to pardon the money and in these circumstances I've preferred to stay in La Coruna and finish my contract in June," explained Victor.
Liverpool could rekindle their interest in Victor in the summer when he becomes a free agent.
