According to Tony Barrett of the Times, Rodgers confirmed that Liverpool would not be accepting any bids for the player, even if he has a desire to leave.

The 20-year-old received criticism for an apparent greediness after he rejected an offer on a new contract at Anfield, which according to the BBC was worth £100,000 a week.

The England international revealed that he sees his future somewhere he can win trophies, rather than where there was the most to gain financially, hence the reason he has decided to delay talks until the end of the season. But, Barrett revealed that his manager believes that if he wants to win silverware, then he is in the best place to do so already.

Rodgers reminded the player that the Merseyside club are one of the biggest in the world and have been crucial to his development.
