Thursday’s biggest stories for the Reds.
Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert revealed he did have discussion with Aston Villa over transfer
During the January transfer window there were strong rumours that Lambert was moving to Villa and it turns out the speculation was true.
The 33-year-old has struggled to make an impression at Anfield since a summer switch from Southampton, but decided to stay with his boyhood club.
“I got a phone call from gaffer Brendan Rodgers at 4pm on deadline day saying Villa had come in. I didn’t think it was right for me to leave six months into my Liverpool career. I didn’t want to go,” Lambert was quoted by Sky Sports.
