Standard Liege starlet Axel Witsel will not be joining one of the many English clubs after him.

Liege have decided not to sell the 19-year old midfielder who has attracted interest from Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Bolton and Middlesbrough and the club has revealed that they have already rejected a massive offer for him.

"I had a bid of €20million for Witsel and it was refused," Liege’s vice-president Luciano D’Onofrio said.

"It is not even a question."
