Rodgers: Markovic has a Liverpool future

Serbia international Markovic has failed to make an appearance for the Reds so far this season, and appears to be on the brink of joining Turkish club Fenerbahce on a season-long loan.
The 21-year-old showed brief signs of his talent after signing for £20million from Benfica last season, but would find himself up against intense competition for places at Anfield this season.
While the winger may feel the move is a step down, Rodgers insists it does not signal the end of his spell on Merseyside.
“Markovic still has a future here,” he told a press conference before this weekend’s clash with West Ham.
Pressed on his thoughts on another of last year’s signings, Mario Balotelli, leaving for AC Milan on loan, the Northern Irishman added that he believes the move will benefit the Italian.
“No,” was Rodgers’ simple answer when asked if he regretted signing the striker. “It’s a good move for Mario. He goes to play and gets a season of playing football in his homeland.”
Seven players have arrived at Anfield this summer, and Rodgers believes that the £32.5million signing of striker Christian Benteke will be the club’s last business of this transfer window.
“You won’t need to be set up around here on deadline day,” he told the reporters in attendance. “We’ll be quiet.”
