Liverpool boss Benitez: No panic over Mascherano deal

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is confident they won't lose Javier Mascherano, with the deadline to make his £17 million move permanent falling tonight.

From tomorrow, Liverpool will not have first option on the Argie, but Benitez told liverpoolfc.tv: "Really we don't need to do anything because the player is with us. It's not the transfer window so it's another kind of business but I think we will have good news.

"It's not necessary. If we don't do anything the player can play with us.

"Yes, he wants to stay."
