Daniel Sturridge: Has not made any contractual demands to Liverpool

The England international is believed to be a January target for Anfield manager Brendan Rodgers after he failed to lure the 23-year-old north in the summer.

Sturridge reportedly asked for an £80,000-a-week salary plus assurances he would be played as a striker, having spent much of his career for club and country employed in a wide role.

But his representatives, Octagon, released a statement which read: "Daniel Sturridge does not conduct his business in public.

"He also does not make demands in any negotiation, with regards to salary or his playing position.

"Any contract between a club and a player has to be based on mutual agreement."

Sturridge has not played since the 2-1 loss to West Brom last month due to a hamstring problem.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
