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.
