Roy Hodgson vill gärna att Liverpool ska förlänga kontraktet med Jamie Carragher, som bara har ett kvar på sitt nuvarande kontrakt med klubben.

”I’m sure it [a contract extension] will be a priority. Quite frankly so much has happened in the last five weeks, the hours I’ve spent at the club are enormous, that we haven’t actually got round to discussing contracts with players. I now know that Carragher has got one year left. That’s the only contract of a player that I know about. If you asked me how many years the others have got, I haven’t got a clue,” sa Hodgson till The Guardian.

Hodgson bekräftade även att han försökte hämta tillbaka Sami Hyypiä till Liverpool.

”I can see players like Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard never leaving Liverpool Football Club. I can see them always being part of the club. In the same way I’m a bit disappointed that my attempts to bring Sami Hyypia back failed. It only failed because he’s so important to Bayer Leverkusen. We couldn’t get him out of his contract. He’s one I would also put in the Jamie Carragher-Steven Gerrard mould, Liverpool for life. Unfortunately he was let go at the end of the season before last and we can’t get him back. He’s too valuable to them,” sa Hodgson.

Mer nytt på spelarfronten är att Sky Sport Italia hävdar att Emiliano Insua är nära en flytt till Genoa.

Dessutom meddelar Christian Poulsens agent att mittfältaren ser ut att bli klar för Liverpool inom en vecka. Läs hela Ekstra Bladets artikel HÄR.
