Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers not looking to bring in loan players

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admits that he is not looking to bring in loan players this summer.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed that he is hoping to avoid bringing in loan players this summer at Anfield.

The Northern Irishman, who signed a new long-term contract on Monday, has confirmed that he and his recruitment team have already begun searching for new talent.

"It's always about the availability of players," Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo. "If you are not satisfied with the squad and you feel you can improve it then you have to look at every option.

"In these first couple of years I've been here we have had to do that as we've had a thin squad. We turn the page and it's another chapter in terms of where we are going.

"Hopefully that will mean it will be more permanent players than loan players but I can never rule it out completely. There could be a situation where a player becomes available, we can get him and he can add to what we're doing."

Liverpool finished two points behind Premier League champions Manchester City last season.
