The 28-year-old, who saw his season end with a red card during Sunderland’s mauling at the hands of Aston Villa last night, was linked with several moves during the January transfer window but nothing materialised and he now insists that he is happy in the Northeast now that his family are with him.
“The issue with my family is settled now,” he said. “Two years ago when I arrived, sometimes my family wasn’t here, but now it’s fine.”
“They live here now and the problem is completely finished.”
“Even then (last summer) through, I never gave it (leaving the club) a thought. I didn’t think about it and I didn’t think about was being said about me.”
Liverpool are on the look out for new forwards with Luis Suarez now missing for ten games, six of which will be next season, and Sessegnon has been the bright spark in an otherwise poor campaign that could still see them slip through the trap door.
Sessegnon joined Liverpool in 2011 from PSG for £6 million. This season he has scored 7 goals in 34 games.
