Liverpool aren't expected to seek the return of Michael Owen after owner John W Henry's open letter to fans yesterday.

Manager Brendan Rodgers refused to rule out taking free agent Owen, who has been released by Manchester United, back to Merseyside after Sunday's 2-0 defeat by Arsenal, given his small squad.

But principal owner John W Henry said he will not be looking for "expensive, short-term quick fixes" and instead will focus on developing the players already at the club.
