Daniel Sturridge: Linked wih Liverpool

Rafa Benitez has admitted that he does not know if Daniel Sturridge will be leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window.

Sturridge has struggled to establish himself as a regular at Stamford Bridge and it was reported earlier this week that Liverpool were closing in on a move for the forward.

Fresh speculation has suggested that the deal has hit a snag, but Benitez refused to give too much away and would only hint that there could be a switch next month.

"He was training with us yesterday," Benitez said in the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle. "But that was just one training session. So now we have to wait, because he was injured.

"To be fair, I only saw him three times last week, so he couldn't train too much in this time with him."

Asked if Sturridge was set for a move, Benitez said: "We will see. You never know in the market."

Benitez insisted he was in the dark over stories linking the 23-year-old with a move to Liverpool.

"I don't know what they said, because I didn't read the press," the Chelsea manager commented.
