Liverpool owner Henry admits buy British best policy

Liverpool owner John W Henry says their buy British policy will continue.

Liverpool are primarily pursuing young British players with excellent fitness and disciplinary records, such as Aston Villa's Stewart Downing and Blackpool midfielder Charlie Adam - and Henry insisted that policy will continue.

"Speculation on players shouldn't include those of a certain age," he tweeted. "We are not going to be successful by merely filling short-term needs.

"Everything in sports is overpriced now - especially the cost of winning. But you make your choices based on a plan.

"Some things happen early and some late. The important thing is that things happen. Sometimes what you avoid is important."
