Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has blanked questions over their offer for Aston Villa fullback Luke Young.

Villa manager Martin O'Neill has revealed the defender is considering an approach from an unnamed club.

Sources close to Villa Park have indicated that the offer has come from Anfield but Hodgson would not be drawn when questioned at a press conference for Thursday's Europa League qualifier against FK Rabotnicki.

Hodgson did speak at length about the game in Macedonia - his first competitive fixture since taking charge - but appeared agitated when the subject changed to other matters.

When asked about Young and on rumours linking winger Maxi Rodriguez with a return to Espanyol, the 62-year-old said: "They are not playing tomorrow."
