Sky Sports understands that Liverpool have no interest in Dutch star Wesley Sneijder - but managing director Ian Ayre insists the club have the finances in place to make any signings they want.

Ayre also spoke about Steven Gerrard's recent comments, when he stressed that the club cannot just buy young players - and the Liverpool chief agreed wholeheartedly. "I thought Steven's comment and the journalism around it were first class - there is no policy at this club of only signing young players, that is a myth," he said. "If you look at our squad in terms of what a squad should look like we have an ideal mix, our two most senior players have spent their entire career with their local club - we have got three or four young players that are breaking into the first team through our academy system, and then we have renowned international players like Luis Suarez and Glen Johnson we have brought in, and like Steven says, senior players have a part to play - we certainly would not exclude anyone from our thinking."
