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."

Can't really blame Dnipro. Imagine if Barca had come in for Suarez on the last day of the transfer window and offered his release clause. Of course you have to accept it but you don't have to immediately to accommodate the buying club.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
