Real Madrid won't give up on Liverpool winger Pennant

Real Madrid are trying again for Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant.

Pennant had priced himself out of a move to Madrid on Thursday, but Sky Sports News says Real have made a new push for the winger.

Pennant has made just four appearances for Liverpool this season and it appears he does not figure in Rafa Benitez's long-term plans.

The former Birmingham and Arsenal ace is out of contract in the summer and he could agree a pre-contract with any interested continental sides next month.

Real are now hoping to do a deal with Liverpool to bring Pennant to El Santiago Bernabeu when the transfer window reopens.

Liverpool could be willing to cash-in on Pennant next month rather than risk losing the 25-year-old for nothing at the end of the season.
