Brendan Rodgers Rules Out Loan Deals

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists there is no chance of him sending Raheem Sterling and Suso out on loan.

The pair have graduated out of the Anfield academy system to form part of the senior ranks this season.

Sterling enjoyed a flying start to his campaign, earning England recognition along the way, while Suso also caught the eye with a collection of assured displays.

Both have, however, been demoted to the U21 side over recent weeks, with Rodgers favouring other creative options.

The Reds boss has been quick to point out, though, that the absence of Sterling and Suso from his present plans does not mean that he would be willing to let them leave on a short-term deal.

"It's very simple, neither of them are available for loan," said Rodgers.

"I'm not sure where the stories have come from, to be honest. They're both young players that have played a lot this year - they have been very much a part of the group.

"Raheem has been outstanding this year, he's only young and we need to nurture and protect him.

"We've got a very small squad and those two boys are an integral part of the group. That (loan deals) won't happen."
