Alberto Aquilani and Joe Cole are continuing to be monitored by Liverpool says manager Kenny Dalglish.

The midfield pair are out on loan at AC Milan and Lille respectively and Dalglish has indicated that they are two players who will be not be forgotten for the future.

"They're not forgotten. We keep monitoring them so we know where we're going," he told the club's official website.

"For Alberto it's an opportunity for him to go back home and if he does well then they'll purchase him.

"For Joe Cole it was a fantastic opportunity for him to go and play Champions League football and also in France, which is a league that I think will suit Joe down to the ground and he's done really well since he's gone there."
