Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is expecting to be active in the January market.
Rodgers refused to comment on speculation linking the 20-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in the npower Championship, with a return.
But he did admit they were looking to bolster the ranks of young players familiar with domestic football.
"Our scouting network have been looking high and low for all sorts of talents to come in here," he said. "At this moment in time there is nothing to speak about.
"If we can get talented young players in - and young British players - that will be fantastic for us.
"Any negotiations take place by the people above me and we'll conclude what we can as early as we can."
