Liverpool boss Hodgson wants to bring more British talent through

New Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson wants to bring more British talent to Anfield.

Hodgson signalled there would be a change in direction from Benitez's fondness for buying Spanish players - and vowed Liverpool would be going for more home-grown talent.

He said: "We have to fall back on English players with the way UEFA and Premier League rules are going.

"We've got to get more homegrown players because otherwise we're going to struggle to get our squad numbers together.

"Kenny Dalglish (the youth academy ambassador) can play a very important role in this."
