Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has revealed he will hold talks with midfielder Javier Mascherano in a couple of weeks.

The Argentina captain is uncertain about his Anfield future and is reportedly on the verge of departing but Hodgson assured Reds fans that he would go through things with him when he returns from holiday.

"Mascherano is on holiday. He's not due back until the 5th August so when he returns to the club I'll be speaking to him, not before then," Hodgson told Sky Sports News.
