Sturridge shocker: Chelsea striker demanded 'positional clause' in Liverpool deal!

Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge almost scuppered his imminent move to Liverpool with an extraordinary playing demand.

The Sunday Mirror says negotiations between Sturridge and Liverpool stalled while the 23-year-old asked about a written agreement to play through the middle.
