Liverpool failed in a bid to sign Hungarian midfielder Balazs Dzsudzsak from Dinamo Moscow during the transfer window it has emerged.

Anfield manager Brendan Rodgers strengthened his squad with the additions of England striker Daniel Sturridge, who joined early in January from Chelsea, and Philippe Coutinho, Inter Milan’s Brazilian midfielder who completed his move at the end of the window.

Liverpool backed out of discussions to re-sign Tom Ince from Blackpool 18 months after selling him due to an increasing asking price, and Dzsudzsak has revealed that Rodgers also wanted to sign him only for their offer to be rejected by Dinamo Moscow.

Dzsudzsak may yet make the move to the Premier League in the summer and told Nemzeti Sport: “I stay, but it wasn’t up to me. Dinamo didn’t let me go, not even to Liverpool. I can’t say any more because it is not my position to do so.

“I want to say that in Hungary people have written me off, but it seems that some respectable teams still believe in me. I am not that disappointed. What I couldn’t do during the winter transfer window can be done in the summer. It’s also a nice feeling that in Moscow they have faith in me.”

The 26-year-old Hungarian international winger first came to prominence at PSV Eindhoven, who he joined from home town team Debrecen, in the Dutch Eredivisie before heading to Russia where he had a brief spell with Anzhi Makhachkala before joining Dinamo Moscow a year ago.

He has been capped 49 times by Hungary having made his international debut at the age of 19.
