It was confirmed by BBC Sport that Liverpool had their opening offer instantly rejected by the Saints, as the club search for a replacement to Glen Johnson.

According to the report, the Merseyside club will return with an improved offer for the England international – whose contract expires next summer.

BBC Sport claim that Manchester City’s James Milner and Burnley’s Danny Ings, along with Clyne, are at the top of Brendan Rodgers’ transfer wish-list ahead of the summer window. Though little progress looks to have been made over the signing of the trio, other than the embarrassment of having their initial offer for the latter publicly rejected.

Many Twitter users believe that the offer of £10m is an insult to a player of Clyne’s quality, and have questioned whether Anfield would be a good move for his development.
