Liverpool boss Klopp: Woodburn and his family understand our decision

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has shut the door on Ben Woodburn leaving this month.

The 18-year-old had been tipped to join Sunderland, in a move that would see him reunite with his ex-international boss, Chris Coleman.

“He is completely relaxed, his family is relaxed and I am relaxed. The request is logical but there's no rush at the moment.

"He is in the right place.

“We will help him, of course, and if there is any point in the next year when we think he needs to go somewhere then we will consider that for sure. But not for the moment."
