Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has played down talk of a move for Newcastle United midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa. Ben Arfa has been linked with the Reds in recent weeks.

Rodgers told talkSPORT: "I only just heard about that in the way in [to training].

"The thing I've learnt about Liverpool is that, just because of the sheer size of the club, there are players linked with us all the time.

"As a manager, you are just trying to focus on the group you have got and then we will review anything at the end of the season, in terms of players coming in. There's no doubt we want to strengthen but there's certainly no names out there."
