Stewart Downing claims he has never wanted to leave Liverpool and hopes his return to form will earn him an extended stay.

Dialogue

Downing netted his first Premier League goal for Liverpool on Saturday, as the Reds hammered Fulham 4-0, and he hopes he has done enough to convince Rodgers that he is worth having around. "The good thing is we have had open dialogue," he added. "I speak to him if I have a problem and if he has something to say to me he can speak to me, so from that point it has been good. "He has been straight with me and said if something comes up in January them we'd look at it but if he's saying I'm staying then it's a funny old game football. "The only thing I can do is play well and make him keep me and pick me and that is all I am trying to do."
