The 21-year-old will spend the whole fo the forthcoming season back in Spain after starting just twice in his first year at Anfield.

Liverpool paid a reported £6.8m for Alberto when he was bought from Sevilla last summer, but he was last seen in action in Janaury.

A club statement read: "Liverpool today confirmed that midfielder Luis Alberto has completed a season-long loan switch to Spanish outfit Malaga.

Liverpool's hopes of signing another Sevilla player, left-back Alberto Moreno, are slim according to quotes attributed to the club's sporting director.

Spanish newspaper El Correo de Andalucia quoted Monchi as saying: "The matter of Alberto is practically settled. We couldn't reach an agreement and I don't think it can be revived.

"I don't think we'll make a lot of moves but if on August 14 a club comes along and they give you a mountain of cash, well....I know you don't like to hear it, but we are economic managers.

"My feeling is that the negotiations are paralysed and I don't see any hint that they will be restarted. We put a price on our players which we believe to be appropriate. Whoever wants to buy, can buy, and if you can't...."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
