Yevhen Konoplyanka: Could still be set to join Liverpool at the end of the seaso

Liverpool tried to bring in the winger before Friday night's deadline but could not finalise a deal, with reports suggesting that the clubs could not agree on how a fee would be paid.

Brendan Rodgers has since insisted that money was not the problem and admitted Liverpool could revive their interest in Konoplyanka at the end of the season.

Dnipro official Rusol is also convinced that, with enough time, a transfer can finally be sorted.

"I am a thousand per cent sure that Liverpool will try again in the summer and then we'll let him go," he is quoted as telling Ukrainian media outlets.

"Money was not the problem, the problem was that Liverpool came too late.

"But in the summer everything will be fine. If Liverpool, in the summer, report to us, Yevhen will still go to this club."

Rusol also dismissed suggestions that Dnipro president Igor Kolomoisky had vetoed the deal, insisting that the club were ready to do business.

He added: "Igor Kolomoisky gave the go-ahead immediately. It is not our fault, Liverpool representatives could have arrived a day or two earlier.

"Up to the deadline we were waiting for the transfer of money from Liverpool. But this did not happen."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
