"We are where we are on that one," he reported. "Ideally, if we can do something, then yes we will.
"He's someone we know and someone we know can have an impact, so yes we would like to see if something can be done with Ossie.
"But obviously he isn't our player and that means the ball is in Liverpool's court."
