Liverpool FC were frustrated in their attempts to sell Fabio Borini on deadline day as the Italian striker rejected a £13million transfer to Queens Park Rangers.

The Reds granted permission for Borini to discuss personal terms with the Hoops after agreeing a deal worth £10million up front and a further £3million in add-ons.

However, the 23-year-old frontman priced himself out of a move to Loftus Road by demanding £90,000 per week.

QPR were only prepared to offer around £55,000 per week and with Borini unwilling to budge the deal collapsed.

Jose Enrique in action.

Jose Enrique knows he has got a battle on his hands to reclaim his place in the Liverpool FC side after finally making his comeback from injury.

The Spanish defender came off the bench during the closing stages of Sunday’s emphatic 3-0 victory over Tottenham.

It was Enrique’s first Premier League appearance for nine months after struggling to overcome a knee problem.

The 28-year-old is now fully fit but he finds himself competing for the left-back spot with fellow countryman Alberto Moreno.

The £12million summer signing from Sevilla capped only his second outing for the Reds with a stunning solo effort at White Hart Lane.

Why Henderson is the man to replace Agger as vice-captain

By on September 1, 2014

After news has come out that Daniel Agger is departing Liverpool it time to start looking for a new vice-captain. In our squad there are plenty of leaders and the obvious candidate would be Martin Skrtel because of his lengthy stay at the club.

Jordan Henderson

But for me you cannot look beyond Jordan Henderson, since Brendan Rodgers has arrived at Liverpool Henderson has showed superb commitment to the team and definitely deserves this chance. Henderson has now made himself a key fixture in this quality Reds team despite being cast out by Rodgers when he arrived in 12/13.

So let’s look at Henderson in depth, last season only Steve Sidwell, Mark Noble and Mile Jedinak covered more ground than Henderson, showing that the England international is the sort of player that takes responsibility for others. In fact, it is the view of many Liverpool fans that Henderson was the legs of two players which allowed Steven Gerrard to flourish in his new position.

We can put summer of woe behind us, insists young forward

This has been a summer of woe for England but Raheem Sterling is confident “exciting times” lie ahead.

The World Cup could not have gone much worse for Roy Hodgson’s side, whose terrible performance in Brazil was underlined by the fact they collected just a single point.

There has been little time to get over that disappointment, though, as nine weeks on the squad have reconvened ahead of tomorrow’s friendly against Norway and opening Euro 2016 qualifier in Switzerland.

Alberto Moreno celebrates scoring his side’s third goal of the game with teammate Daniel Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge celebrates his 25th birthday – an occasion he marked with a congratulatory tweet to himself. 

But we’d like to offer our own birthday present to the Liverpool FC striker.

It’s a look back at his top 25 moments since he joined the Reds in January 2013 – the goals, dance moves, the fast cars, raps and tweets. 

Happy birthday, Dan! 

1 Sturridge didn’t have to wait long for his first LFC goal. Seven minutes, in fact. 

He set the Reds on the way to a 2-1 FA Cup third-round win at Mansfield Town by side-footing home a Jonjo Shelvey through-ball – then airing his famous dance goal celebration.
