Liverpool boss Rodgers insists Sterling, Suso staying

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists he's not seeking to loan out his best young players.

Raheem Sterling, Suso, Jonjo Shelvey and Andre Wisdom all played for the under-21s this week having seen their playing time with the senior side reduced in recent weeks and there was speculation the former two may get a chance to play elsewhere to get their pitch-time up.

"None of them are available for loan. That is something which won't happen," said Rodgers.

"They (Sterling and Suso) are both young players who have played a lot this year and they have been very much part of our group.

"Raheem has been outstanding this year but he is only young so we need to nurture and protect him.

"On top of that, we have a very small squad and those two boys are real integral parts of the group at this moment in time."
