Liverpool boss Klopp: Sturridge unhappy, but these exit stories...

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists Daniel Sturridge will not be leaving Anfield in January.

It broke yesterday that Sturridge was planning to demand a transfer in order to rescue his England World Cup hopes.

However, Klopp says Sturridge, whose lack of game time cost him his place in the England squad, will get opportunities over the coming weeks and he's not contemplating off-loading him.

"It's a story. But actually I am not really interested in stories," Klopp said. “The situation with the player is completely okay.

“I can imagine a player with his quality is not happy that he is not starting all the time. I really can imagine that. But that's all.

“At this moment we need all our players. We have November, even if he feels a little different.

“There is around one-and-a-half months to go before the window opens and I don't think for a second about things like this. There are so many games before then and I need all of them."
