Rodgers is also aware that his squad is looking bare in other departments and has vowed to bring in new recruits.
"We'll have funds," Rodgers told the Reds' official website. "I'm in talks with the owners at the moment along with our recruitment team. We know we need to reinforce the group, so that's something that is ongoing.

"At this moment in time, it really is about reinforcing the group rather than looking too much at people going the other way."
