Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed they're in talks with Olympiakos over the sale of Albert Riera.

The Spaniard played no part in Wednesday night's friendly draw with Grasshoppers as discussions over his future continue with the Greek outfit.

Hodgson told "Albert Riera did not play as a precaution because negotiations are ongoing with Olympiacos."

Riera signed from Espanyol in August 2008 and has scored five goals in 56 appearances.
