Liverpool target Henrikh Mkhitaryan AWOL from Shakhtar

Shakhtar Donetsk admit Henrikh Mkhitaryan has gone AWOL.

But the Ukraine club insist there's been no fresh contact from Liverpool.

Shakhtar's general manager Sergey Palkin said: "Mkhitaryan has not appeared for training. We do not know if he will arrive in the near future. He will be fined."

On the ongoing move talk, Palkin added: "He has not had any contact with Liverpool. I am confident that reports of negotiations are just rumours. Liverpool have not made an enquiry about the player.

"We have not heard that Mkhitaryan wants to leave. All questions about his behaviour need to be addressed to him."
