Rodgers: Agger wants to stay at Liverpool

Former Swansea boss claims the Denmark international has told him he wants to remain at Anfield this season despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester City.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Daniel Agger wants to remain at the club despite speculation linking him with a move to Manchester City.

The Denmark international has been at the club for six years since moving from Brondby in 2006 and has made over 100 league appearances for the Reds.

Rodgers is adamant the Merseyside club want to keep the defender and the former Swansea boss admitted Agger has told him he wants to remain at Anfield.

"For me there has been no big change," Rodgers told reporters. "The first point is we don't want to sell him. Secondly, I believe he will be a player who will thrive in this way of working and thirdly he doesn't want to leave - which is a great help as well. He is a top player and I want to keep him here.

"Over the last couple of months we have been able to sell the project and vision to a number of senior players. They are very happy to move forward with it and I would expect Daniel to be the same. He made that clear in the very first conversation we had that he wanted to be part of our revolution here in terms of moving forward and he hasn't wavered from that in any single way whatsoever. Other reported clubs have made bids for him, which is natural, because he is a top player. But for us nothing has changed. He doesn't want to go and we don't want to sell him."
