Transfer News: Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says no imminent arrivals
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says there is "nothing imminent" in terms of the club signing new players in January.

Rodgers' plans were boosted before Christmas after the Reds agreed a longer-term contract with star Uruguay forward Luis Suarez.
Liverpool's owners tied up a deal very early in the last winter window, confirming the capture of striker Daniel Sturridge from Chelsea on January 2.
And reports this week have suggested Barcelona forward Cristian Tello is close to joining on loan until the end of the season.
Liverpool have also extensively scouted Basle winger Mohamed Salah but reports of him being on the verge of a switch to Merseyside are premature.
The 21-year-old is regarded a key player for his current club, who currently lead the Swiss Super League and as their domestic competition does not resume until February 1 there is significant resistance to a sale.
Liverpool are interested in doing a deal for the promising young forward but any agreement in January would have to be on the right financial terms and may ultimately prove too difficult to complete with a summer transfer appearing more likely.
But when asked about the Tello situation inparticular, Rodgers said: "I'm sure that will be the start of it (transfer talk), and I'm sure there will be plenty more!
"But there's nothing to add on anything with regard to players coming in. There's nothing imminent.
"Obviously the recruitment team are busy putting things together in terms of the profile of players we need here to improve the team and the squad.
"The owners have invested millions upon millions into the team and every window we arrive in looking to improve where we can. This window will be no different."
