Dnipro chief Rusol: Liverpool never made their payment for Konoplyanka

Dnipro chief Andriy Rusol has lifted the lid on Liverpool's failed swoop for Yehven Konoplyanka. Rusol says Liverpool didn't transfer the fee agreed - £15 million - in time before the deadline fell.

He said: "The president could not keep the midfielder because his contract spelled out the specific amount of compensation.

"In fact, the British did not have time to complete the transaction. Our club could not sign the documents until our account received the money. And they did not receive anything before the deadline."

Rusol continued: "Igor Kolomoisky gave the go-ahead immediately. It is not our fault, Liverpool representatives could have arrived a day or two earlier.

"Up to the deadline we were waiting for the transfer of money from Liverpool. But this did not happen."
