Wigan keeper Al Habsi plays down Liverpool talk

Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi has played down reports that he could soon be on his way to Liverpool.

Reports on the weekend broke that the Reds were set to make a move for the 30-year old Oman international in January with Pepe Reina's long-term Anfield future in doubt but Al Habsi has made it clear that he is not looking to leave the DW Stadium.

"I have said it many times before but I love this football club, I love the fans and I hope to give them much more," Al Habsi told the Wigan Evening Post.

"I heard about what was said at the weekend, but that kind of thing is not of any importance to me.

"I am very, very happy at Wigan - as has been the case since I first came here.

"I am doing well, my form is coming on with every game I play, and my confidence is very high.

"All I want to do is concentrate on my job here and to help the team, because there is lots of work to be done."
