Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez has said that Dirk Kuyt and Yossi Benayoun will be staying at the club this summer.
Kuyt is a target for German club Hamburg while Benitez says that Roma are interested in midfielder Benayoun.
Rafa met with both players on Thursday and said: “Neither of them will be leaving. I have no more news about Yossi, he will be staying. I am really pleased with Kuyt. He will be staying.”
Benitez has made it clear he still considers Kuyt and Benayoun part of his plans. Benayoun was only a ‘bit part’ player last season and the hard working Kuyt never really produced the quality that Liverpool need.
I am slightly surprised as the money from selling one or both of these players could surely have funded the move for a certain Aston Villa player?
