England goalkeeper Tom Heaton has committed his future to Burnley by signing a new contract until June 2018.
Wolfsburg have moved to sway Newcastle away from a move for Bas Dost by claiming the striker would command a fee around the £29million mark.
Aly Cissokho has shrugged off criticism of his performances for Liverpool as he waits to find out if he has a future at the club beyond the end of his loan spell.
Cissokho joined Liverpool on a season-long loan deal from Valencia last summer but made the worst possible start to his Anfield career as he suffered a nasty ankle injury in the Capital One Cup game against Notts County.
A spell on the sidelines meant that it took longer for Cissokho to adjust to English football, and he is aware that some people continue to doubt his ability.
However, the French left-back does not pay attention to such matters and insists he is as determined as ever to play a key role for the team.
He told L'Equipe: "In my first match against Notts County, after five minutes, my ankle turned. It was a big ankle sprain.
"The most important injury in my whole career so far and at the worst moment. A piece of cartilage moved. I had to undergo surgery in London.
"It was a very difficult moment. I was afraid. Surgery delayed my adaptation.
"Critics? I am used to not winning unanimous support. I let people have their own opinion and I give my best."
Cissokho has always been aware of Liverpool's history and feels a great sense of pride at playing for such a club.
He explained: "You'll never walk alone? That hymn impressed me when I was a kid. It is beautiful, extraordinary. The first time I could hear it with the red shirt on my back, I felt a lot of emotions.
"I thought about how far I have come, all those years when I worked hard to achieve my dream."
Cissokho has previously made it clear that he would welcome the chance to stay at Liverpool on a permanent deal, but he accepts that it will be the two clubs who decide his long-term future.
He told Canal+: "Valencia is also a great club, but there are a lot of economic problems in Spain.
"I have given my very best for Liverpool and we will see at the end of the season what both clubs will decide.
"If I have to leave Liverpool, I will leave. I am doing a nice job and that is the most important."
